“We saw a need for a superior group pet insurance product that boosts employers’ talent retention and acquisition strategy, while empowering employees to take the best care of the furry companions who provided comfort during the dark days of the pandemic. Our new product stands out as the only true group product in the marketplace, offering an easier and simpler solution for brokers, employee benefit professionals, and HR leaders, and of course, employees. Pet insurance is our top priority and our only business. For nearly two decades, we have been at the forefront of product innovation and dedicated to supporting pet lovers in their efforts to provide the best medical care for their fur buddies. Our new employer Group Product demonstrates our commitment to helping companies attain an edge in the competitive job market by increasing the job satisfaction of their most valuable asset–their employees.” – Lane Kent, President of PetPartners.
PetPartners policyholders also receive pet care essential tools that go beyond insurance coverage. These include easy access, at no additional cost, to the 24/7 Vet Helpline for round the clock support for pet care questions, TailTrax® mobile app for keeping pertinent pet information at the touch of a button, and PetGeniusRx which searches for best discounts on pet prescriptions.
PetPartners’ new Group Pet Product is the first step in a larger initiative to enable employers to allow their employees to bring their pets to work, thereby supporting employee morale and helping ensure the many pets adopted during the pandemic remain in their homes. “This is a cause we strongly advocate for as it fits with our belief that the human-animal bond is fundamentally beneficial for the mental and physical health of both people and animals. Taking care of both our employees and their pets is critical to maintaining an inspired workforce–and just plain good business.” – David Kettig, CEO of the holding company for PetPartners.
