InsurTech Kanguro Insurance has launched its health insurance plans for pets. Startup describes itself as the only InsurTech offering an end-to-end customer experience.
68% of US households have a pet, and vet bills continue to rise. Many dogs and cats enjoy going to the vet as puppies but then as they get older they start to feel fear.
Families often change veterinary clinics because they are worried that their pet had a bad experience because the pet starts shaking or being aggressive when they arrive at the clinic.
Most pets who are afraid of the vet are afraid because of what they perceive as a negative experience in an unfamiliar place. When we think about the daily routine of pets, they have positive experiences when they go to the park, go for a walk, visit the
doggy daycare, but the only place that is not always positive is visiting the veterinary hospital. Although the veterinarian is gentle, caring and affectionate with your pet, he might still perceive the interactions as a negative experience.
Kanguro offers a fully customisable, conceptually similar coverage to human health insurance, where policyholders pay a monthly premium, covering a wide range of veterinary visits, diagnostic tests, surgical procedures, and medications.
This coverage plan provides peace of mind to pet parents and allows them to focus on their pet’s health and wellbeing.
Kanguro Insurance is a fully digital company, offering a 24/7 mobile app for claims handling, where policyholders can easily request reimbursements for vet bills, access the content hub, exclusive discounts for treats, grooming, and boarding, and the digital vaccination card via the Kanguro cloud.
The company’s vision is simple: to modernise the insurance experience for Spanish-speaking Americans.
With its strong focus on digital innovation and bilingual customer service, Kanguro Insurance aims to modernise the pet insurance industry in the US.
Since its launch in September 2022, the start-up has sold more than 1,000 policies.
