Wagmo offers a single pet insurance plan and three different wellness plans. If you own a pet, then you probably already know your furry friends can get quite expensive. Pet-related expenses never seem to stop, from heart-worm and flea medicine to the costs of wellness exams and other basic care.

To help manage these expenses, many pet owners look to pet insurance which is a kind of health insurance. Wagmo is a company that offers pet insurance.

Wagmo pet insurance

Pet insurance plans starting at $13 per month

When once you meet your deductible, Wagmo will cover 100% of the bill. Policy plans have a lifetime benefit limit of $100,000 and $10,000 per incident limit. You can choose a deductible of $500, $750, or $1,000

Wagmo policy coverage covers unexpected illnesses and injuries for cats and dogs. The policy is not really customizable but they have a reason for this. After doing the calculations, they discovered that majority of pet owners do not need unlimited coverage policy for their pets. As a result, they decided to design a maximum coverage amount that would lower premiums and cover most bills.
