AAHA adds two new programs to provide financial options for pet owners, peace of mind for you


You and your team have been there: A patient needs life-saving care, but the owner is unable to pay for it. What do you do?

When it comes to providing the best care for patients, economic limitations of pet owners can add stress to the equation. Too often, this stress spreads to the veterinary care team, creating additional financial burdens for the practice and sparking emotional stress for team members who simply want to ensure every pet receives the very best care. 

To address this situation, AAHA has introduced two new preferred provider and member benefit programs designed to alleviate stress for both veterinary professionals and pet owners when managing the cost of veterinary care: AAHA Pet Health Insurance Program and AAHA Pet Wellness Plans.

Both new programs are key components of AAHA’s Healthy Workplace Culture Initiative, a strategic initiative designed to help relieve stress in the practice by improving veterinary workplace culture. The AAHA Pet Health Insurance Program offered by Petplan pet insurance and AAHA Pet Wellness Plans both seek to reduce stress in the veterinary practice by making it easier for clients to manage the cost of veterinary care.

The AAHA Pet Health Insurance Program

Specifically designed to assist clients with options to pay for unexpected expenses for illnesses and injuries, the AAHA Pet Health Insurance Program is offered by Petplan, an avid AAHA supporter and one of the largest, most respected pet insurance providers in North America.

Enrolling pets for coverage with Petplan is quick and easy. Clients choose their preferred coverage limit, annual deductible, and the reimbursement percentage that suits them best. Policies are broad, flexible, and easy to understand with Petplan handling all enrollment, underwriting, and administrative tasks.

Coverage is available from Petplan throughout the US and most of Canada. To learn more, visit gopetplan.com/AAHA, email [email protected], or call 800-212-2692. 

AAHA Pet Wellness Plans

When it comes to pet healthcare, a wellness plan can make the difference between a pet getting the preventive care he needs—or not getting that care until it is too late.

The AAHA Pet Wellness Plans program is designed to give clients peace of mind by providing access to important preventive care services with an affordable monthly payment. The pet wellness plan program is powered by VCP, an industry leading wellness plan provider.

Pet wellness plans are ideal for pets, for pet owners, and for the veterinary practices that offer them. Pet owners enjoy the convenience of affordable monthly payments and the peace of mind that comes from knowing they are doing what is best for their pets.

For AAHA-accredited practices, pet wellness plans alone or in combination with pet health insurance can lead to enhanced compliance, more patient visits, and increased revenue, all while helping ensure pets get the quality care they need when they need it.

The end result? Healthier pets, happier, more loyal clients, and a healthy, thriving practice. To learn more about AAHA Pet Wellness Plans, visit vcp.vet/aaha or call 855-230-1100.
