Pet Insurance with VPI

Accidents and illnesses happen to pets just as readily as they do in children. And though advances in veterinary

medicine help treat and cure many conditions, the costs of these treatments are increasing. What would you do if

your pet got sick or hurt today? Would you have enough in savings to cover the veterinary costs? VPI Pet Insurance can help you pay for your pet’s veterinary expenses. VPI Pet Insurance is offering Georgia State University students, staff, and retirees a 5% group discount on coverage per pet up to a discount of 15% for three eligible pets.

Pet insurance also provides a financial safety net for unexpected veterinary expenses. With pet insurance, you can focus on giving your pet the best care possible, instead of focusing on the cost of treatment. VPI has a variety of plans to choose from with coverage for preventive care, accidents, illnesses and diseases, including cancer.
