Dutch starts offering pet insurance

Dutch, a startup offering a pet telemedicine service, has entered the insurance space through a partnership with Pets Best.

The California-based startup, which raised $20 million earlier this year, is offering an accident only plan that pays up to $10k per year. The insurance offering, available through Dutch’s Protector plan, blends in some of the services currently offered by the startup including video calls with licensed vets and free shipping for prescriptions. The cost of the Protector plan is $21/mo (billed $250/year), which makes Dutch’s premium package, the Helper plan ($25/mo), less attractive.

The accident insurance plan has a $250 deductible and 10% copay.
