PetPremium is a pet insurance provider that is underwritten by Fairmont Specialty Insurance Agency, Inc. that operates in all 50 states. The company offers accident only and total coverage plans, as well as the option to add wellness coverage at additional cost. PetPremium features highly customizable deductibles and annual limits.
PetPremium offers solid coverage inline with most of the companies on our list. However coverage is not available in every state, and the low prices quotes apply to the company's lower-tier plans that have per incident caps. If you want the higher plans -- which go up to unlimited annual benefits -- it is going to be a higher premium than most of the comparable plans on our list.

Commercial Pets Covered
Coverage - 5 / 10
PetPremium offers Accident Only coverage as well as Total coverage. The company also offers two tiers of wellness plans that cover anything from microchip implant to dental cleanings. Although the wellness component is by comparison robust, the two flagship plans offer coverage that is standard in the pet insurance marketplace. Although pluses are both accident and illness plans cover alternative treatments, and Total coverage will pay for behavioral problems.

PetPremium allows you to download the claim form on their website and then email, fax, or mail it back to the company with applicable invoices. PetPremium's stated policy is to reimburse you within 30 days of the claim. Unlike some of our top companies, PetPremium does not feature the convenience of claims filling directly online or through mobile app, as well as direct deposit.
Deductibles - 10 / 10
PetPremium offers three deductible levels to choose from: $100, $250, and $500. Choosing a lower deductible will translate to higher premiums. This is a solid deductible schedule, but not as flexible as some of the other companies we feature.

The waiting period for all other illnesses is 14 days, the common time frame of most pet insurance plans.
I've been a customer for about a year and a half and I have to sya I like what they have to offer. I have submitted several claims and the reimbursement process was simple and painless. Not everything was covered, but that is how it is with any insurance. What I like about their website is the vast amount of information about pet health and services. They actually do a lot more than just sell insurance. And they really care about pets. Their customer service always has been professional and helpful. wish they could also insure my other pets other than cats and dogs alone. - Daisy
I've had Pet Premium for a year. It's the first time I've had to purchase pet insurance. I've submitted 2 claims in total. The first was for my cat's spaying. They were slow to payout.

My cat is an indoor cat so I'll think I'll be changing to something less expense of cutting back on my coverages with Pet Premium. Their website was cumbersome and confusing at first.
