The companies have come together to offer a new line of coverage products for animal owners to buy.
The Petline pet insurance company has teamed up with leading property and casualty broker NFP to offer a new line of products to cover cats and dogs and give US animal owners peace of mind.
The insurer has been active in the market since 1989 and describes itself as a leader in that category.
The Petline flagship pet insurance brand, Petsecure, offers owners a spectrum of different solutions to fit the individual needs of a furry family member.
The plans can include comprehensive accident and illness coverage with dental, preventive treatments, alternative therapies, and even behavioral therapy protection. It is designed to offer animal owners peace of mind in knowing that they won’t need to choose between the wellbeing of their cat or dog, or their family finances.
A statement from NFP said that by partnering with Petline, it will be able to offer animal health coverage to a whole new region of consumers.
The new NFP pet insurance offering will work in a complementary way to conventional coverage.
The new coverage offering will complement NFP’s existing specialty insurance products such as boat, motorcycle, collector car, snowmobile, recreational vehicle, travel, equine, and DigitalShield cyber protection.
“We’re thrilled to partner with Petline and offer this great product that helps our pet owner clients to protect their pet’s health,” said NFP Personal Risk Managing Director Greg Dunn. “We know how important pets are to our clients, and Petsecure will provide them with the type of comprehensive coverage they deserve.”
“We are happy to join with NFP in Canada to offer pet health insurance to their customers and have more pets protected across Canada,” said Petline Vice President of Operations Raegan Ahlbaum. “With combined experience as insurance specialists, it was a natural fit.”
“At NFP, we want to provide our customers with a comprehensive array of insurance offerings that give them peace of mind regardless of the product or coverage they require,” added NFP Specialty Personal Lines Vice President Pat O’Neill in a recent news release.
