Top-Rated Insurance for Dogs and Cats in Maryland

In a place filled with so much history, coastal recreation, and the enticing smells of the sea (and seafood!), Maryland is a great place to be a pet. People in Maryland love their pets and would do anything to keep them healthy and happy. This is why pet insurance has become so popular among Maryland pet parents so that they can just worry about their pet’s health and not so much about the financial burdens of veterinary care.

Here’s how Maryland pet insurance works and why you should consider a policy for your furry companion in the Old Line State.

Is Pet Insurance Worth It?

Here’s how it was for one Healthy Paws customer: Rockville, MD: “My 9-year-old has had a number of problems over the past few years and I wouldn't have been able to afford all the treatment he's received if it hadn't been for Healthy Paws. Customer Service is pleasant and quick to respond to emails, it's very easy to submit a claim and they pay quickly.”
-Patricia, Healthy Paws customer

Treatment: Cataract surgery

Total Vet Cost: $4,017

Healthy Paws reimbursed: $3,515


Speedy Claim Payouts

With no claim forms to fill out when you want to file a claim, we've created a fast and easy claim process for our customers. Just take a photo of your vet bill and submit it through the Healthy Paws mobile app or your online Healthy Paws customer center. It’s that easy!

How it Works - As Easy As 1, 2, 3*

  1. Visit any US licensed veterinarian or emergency clinic.
  2. Take a photo of your veterinarian bill & submit it via our app/website.
  3. Most claims are processed within 2 days.
*When you file your first claim, we will need a copy of your pet’s full medical history, and if we have any questions, we will reach out to you directly.

No Maximum Limit on Claim Payouts

Healthy Paws plan coverage is provided with no maximum limits on claim payouts; no per-incident, annual or lifetime caps. If your pet needs treatment for a new accident or illness during the plan effective dates, and it’s not a pre-existing condition or otherwise excluded under the policy, your pet’s veterinary bills will be eligible for coverage.

  • 1 straightforward pet insurance policy
  • No costly add-ons
  • Use any licensed veterinarian

Why Get Pet Insurance in Maryland?

Maryland is a generally safe place to live as a pet, but there are still certain risks and hazards that pet parents should be aware of. Pets can get into scuffles in dog parks, eat objects around the house that cause choking, and ingest poisonous plants in the yard. Maryland pets can also break bones from falls in icy winter weather, require surgery due to chronic conditions, and develop cancer as they get older. The five most common claims to Healthy Paws from Maryland pet parents are for skin conditions, pain, gastritis, eye conditions, and ear infections.

Both young and old pets in Maryland benefit from pet insurance, and you can enroll your pet of any breed in a Healthy Paws plan at any time until their 14th birthday. Being able to visit any licensed veterinary in Maryland and across the country and get the care your pet really needs can make a huge difference in your companion’s quality of life.
