WHO’S WHO IN PET INSURANCE Pet health insurance is a fast-growing segment of the U.S. veterinary industry, with more than $1.5 billion worth of policies sold in 2019. The first company in the space, Veterinary Pet Insurance, or VPI, was founded in the early 1980s by Dr. Jack Stephens, a University of Missouri graduate who had left private practice. He departed VPI before its acquisition by Nationwide, and he went on to start another insurance provider, Pets Best. Today, almost 20 companies offer policies, six of them having entered the market since 2018. Today’s Veterinary Business asked the insurers for basic information about their products so that practitioners and hospital team members can compare and contrast what’s available, and speak with greater confidence when clients ask about alternative ways to pay for veterinary care.
