SmartTag has added PetFirst Pet Insurance as a new benefit for SmartTag members. SmartTag’s Standard and Platinum membership plans include one month of pet insurance administered by PetFirst Pet Insurance, which provides reimbursement for its members’ veterinary costs for accidents and illnesses.
“PetFirst is not just a pet insurance company,” said Clint Lawrence, vice president of sales and marketing for PetFirst Pet Insurance. “We are passionate about overall pet wellness, including the safe return of pets that are lost or have strayed. The relationship we have with SmartTag allows us to realize this passion and provide its members with a financial safety net should their pet become injured or ill.”
PetFirst began its relationship with SmartTag in 2011. PetFirst was selected to provide an introductory pet insurance policy to help pet owners if their pet was injured while lost. However, in early 2017, SmartTag wanted to increase the pet insurance benefit included with its membership and looked to PetFirst to provide a broader coverage plan.
“It’s so important for SmartTag to provide valuable added benefits to our members,” said Tom Troiano, director of SmartTag. “Pet insurance is such a natural fit, and PetFirst has been a great partnerof ours by helping us continue to ramp up our member benefits.”
Pet owners in the U.S. are expected to spend $62.75 billion this year on their pets, according to American Pet Products Association. With $15.92 billion of that on veterinary care, pet insurance provides pet owners with a tool to help afford the cost of their pet’s health care.
SmartTag members must call to activate their pet insurance benefit and can do so by calling 855-454-7387. Coverage is available for dogs and cats ages 8 weeks and older.
