Chewy, Inc, an online platform for pet parents and partners, has expanded its insurance and wellness offering with CarePlus, an exclusive suite of wellness and insurance plans for pets currently available in 31 states that will expand nationwide by the end of 2022.
“The launch of CarePlus is a significant step forward in our mission to make pet healthcare more affordable and accessible,” said Mita Malhotra, vice president of Chewy Health, in a company statement.1
“Innovating to improve the customer experience is the cornerstone of our customer strategy. Our thoughtful and personalized selection of wellness and insurance plans will ensure pet owners always say ‘yes’ to high-quality care that will help their pets live longer, healthier and happier lives,” she added.
CarePlus offers 24/7 access to the company‘s customer service team for people who want to be better informed about insurance. It also allows users to quickly connect with licensed veterinarians through Connect with a Vet, and all costs are covered for purchases of eligible prescription drugs, supplements and veterinary diet foods on Chewy’s website.1 These elements have been specifically combined to allow customers to obtain more comprehensive health care for their pets.
Additionally, CarePlus provides a seamless end-to-end user experience for vet and client engagements with the choice of direct payments at participating clinics through Trupanion’s patented software, reducing out-of-pocket expenses.1
Wellness plans start at $20 per month and cover preventative care (eg, annual exams, vaccinations, and parasiticides). Insurance plans start at $20, $60, or $100 per month and provide pet owners with financial ease and peace of mind in the event of accidents, unexpected illnesses, and surgeries. Those looking for comprehensive protection can bundle CarePlus wellness and insurance plans together.
