English Bulldog Insurance Q&A
QDoes Insurance cover congenital and hereditary conditions common to English Bulldogs?
AYes, some plans cover congenital (things that occurred while your dog was still in utero) and hereditary (passed down from your dog’s parents & genetically predetermined) conditions but not all. Refer to the “What’s Covered” widget in the right section of the review page to check on each provider.
QAre there any exclusions or limitations to congenital and hereditary condition coverage?
AYes, if the condition was noted by your veterinarian, prior to enrollment, it would be considered a pre-existing condition and would not be covered by any insurance plan.
QDoes insurance limit coverage or payouts?
ASome insurance companies limit payouts based on annual totals, while others enforce limits based on the condition treated.
QI heard Hip Dysplasia is extremely common for English Bulldogs, does insurance cover it?
AHealthy Paws is the only insurance provider to include lifetime coverage for hip dysplasia when you enroll your pet before the age of six. There is a twelve-month waiting period before coverage takes effect in all states except Maryland and New Hampshire. Trupanion offers Hip Dysplasia coverage but it requires paying for an additional coverage add-on.
