It's a dog eat dog (insurance) world

It was marginally amusing when Baxter Smith was successfully enrolled in an ObamaPlan. After all, the 14-year-old Yorkie was simply an innocent bystander:

"Smith ... had to sign up for coverage through the state exchange because his health insurance plan was cancelled under ObamaCare. He isn’t sure how Baxter wound up getting enrolled instead, but he ... did give Baxter’s name as a security question as part of the registration process."

And perhaps it wasn't a total waste. The Medical Device Tax impacts vet's offices, too:

"Some vets say they can’t afford it ... “I’m extremely concerned how this is going to be a hidden tax to our consumers that is going to be passed on.”

So, what to do?

Well, we've recently partnered with Hartville, one of the oldest - and largest - pet insurance programs, to offer readers a reasonably-priced plan that could reimburse up to 90% of your pet's health care costs. There are three benefit levels available, but they all cover exams, meds and even MRI's.
