Cat Insurance — How it Works

Why Do You Need Pet Insurance for Your Cat?

We know that you’re willing to do anything for your cat, but the truth is, medical care can be a real strain on your finances. In fact, emergency visits to the vet can cost cat owners between $200 and $1,500 per issue.4 And that doesn’t include routine care or medications. Cat health insurance can save you hundreds and ease your mind knowing you can afford care when your fur baby needs it most.

How Much Is Cat Insurance?

MetLife offers a number of affordable insurance plans for cats of all ages. Our plans are comprehensive and fully customizable, including policies as low as $9 a month. You pick your coverage, deductible, and reimbursement to fit your budget, so you can afford the coverage your kitty needs. Learn more about how to break down pet insurance costs.
