Pet insurance: Company offering pet health coverage

A major Pennsylvania health insurer has started offering pet insurance and that’s no tall tail. Officials at Harrisburg-based Capital Blue Cross tellThe Philadelphia Inquirer they believe the company is the first Blue Cross company to offer pet insurance. The program is managed by Philadelphia-based PetPlan.

Capital Blue Cross strategic development director Stacy Balaban says a lot of Americans consider pets family members, so the new program makes sense. About 500 people attended a pets and people health fair last week in Harrisburg to get information. The Inquirer report ( ) says an English couple who studied at the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School began the PetPlan program after their cat needed a kidney transplant. Founder Chris Ashton says an estimated 1 million Americans insure their pets.
