    Really helpful thread, thanks everyone! I signed my 3yr chocolate male up for PetPlan today after much deliberation and about 5 phone calls to them.

    I also wanted to add that you can increase your coverage once during the annual term with them, and decrease any time you want. I'm not sure if this is standard, but good to know.

    I insured Rowdy (DOB 3/26/12) with Pet Plan Silver. It was $196.80 per year. There was a discount if you paid annually rather than monthly.

    I am a long time PetsBest customer and have been pleased with their coverage.

    Unfortunately, PetsBest has switched carriers yet again. They have moved from Aetna to Independence American Insurance Company and their rates have increased significantly.

    The premiums for Sinner's coverage have gone up from $69/month to $230/month...an increase of 350%

    I cancelled the policy this upon receiving the new rate.

    I am very happy with Pet Plan and have received numerous PM from others who have also been pleased with Pet Plan. I switched to Pet Plan in 2009, have made numerous claims on various dogs, and have received uniformly prompt service. All claims made have been reimbursed with minimal hassle.

    And I was upset about the humans health insurance doubling as a result of Obummacare.
    With 4 dogs that too would be more than my mortgage per month. I'll stick with the seperate account with a monthly deposit for emergencies, and a credit card reserved just for them.

    Thanks Ted I've been recommending PetPlan to others as well. I stayed with PetsBest because they had a single incident limit of $14,000. I hope I never need a limit that high again (been there, done that). Trying to decide whether to re-enroll a retired 11 y.o. dog.

    I'm still working on the SS numbers so I can claim them as dependents and avoid an audit. God knows how my deadbeat tenants I evicted got away with what they did on the tax forms we found in the house.
