A few weeks ago, we wrote about the best dog and cat insurance companies in the US.
Now, we’ve got a new report from the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NACI) that’s taking a closer look at the pet insurance industry.
It’s the latest in a series of reports that show how the pet industry has become one of the biggest spenders in the U.S. and in the world.
That’s the kind of data we use to help you make the best decisions for your pets, including pet insurance.NACIC found that the top three pet insurance companies for the 2018 calendar year were all major insurers, but the top four were not.
The top three were Anthem, UnitedHealthcare and Aetna.
The remaining three were Allstate, AetraZeneca and Humana.
