    Default Trupanion - Change to Plans (Core includes hip dysplasia)

    Hey Everyone,

    I got an email from Trupanion saying my current plan is being enhanced and will now include Hip dysplasia in the core plan with a more comprehensive Rider 'A' package.

    I believe I only had the optional insurance becuase of hip dysplasia so before I modify to the core plan would you pay the extra $13 per month for the following :

    Rider A - Additional Care Package
    When you add this optional package to your core policy you are covered for all the services your veterinarian recommends, including the following 17 treatments:
    Acupuncture
    Behavioral modification
    Bone marrow transplants
    Chiropractic
    Colloidal silver treatment
    Gold seed therapy
    Herbal therapy
    Homeopathy
    Hydrotherapy


    Hyperbaric oxygen therapy
    Kidney transplants
    Naturopathy
    Physical and rehabilitative therapy
    Platelet rich plasma injection
    Polyethylene glycol medication
    Shockwave therapy
    Stem cell therapy

    Looking forward to your replys, If I do not go for the new Rider A package my rates would be $49.95 per month with a $400 deductable for those of you that are interested. If I went with the above Rider 'A' it would be $62.95 @ 400 deductable.

    NOTE : Previously to the inquiry I had Kain registered as a "BullDog" and since the call I received an email saying the breed has been adjusted to "American Bulldog" as the previous generic name may have been removed and they are getting back to me. Nice of them to just increase my rate by a breed change when I only called to update the neutered date on my records <sigh> Companies now adays lol.

    That's a lot of coverage for $13. We had a Rottie that accupuncture was so great or..and it was $60 a treatment. And at one treatment a week that gets $$$$. Like all insurance it's a crapshoot! @2BullyMama had stem cell treatment for her Bully...bet she has a thought too.

    Wow... that is an impressive package. We did stem cell with Nitschke which was in two steps and ran about $2500.

    I see they took out "Bulldog" as a breed to choose from. I originally got the optional package since it included Hip Displaysia. Now that Hips are included in the Core plan, I have no need for the option. I ran another quote due to curiosity and it would be $5 more expensive for the core package choosing English Bulldog as the Breed. I didn't receive any email about this, i wonder what will happen at the annual renewal now.

    My annual renewal would roll it forward as bulldog. I'm assuming they will update each record if anyone calls, I have a ticket with support but haven't heard back yet. Looks like if they manually mess with it they can't re-select it.
