The pet insurance market in the United States has been growing fast for years and this market growth was accelerated in 2020 by the "pandemic puppy boom". But, the profitability of pet insurance carriers has been underwhelming recently due to high levels of veterinary services inflation, escalating loss cost trends and expanding care demands of pet owners. However, new capital has been rapidly entering the pet insurance market on the thesis that (1) the market can reach penetration levels seen in the more mature markets of Western Europe, and (2) with broader socialization of costs, profitability will not be so elusive for pet insurers. With only 1.5% of U.S. household pets insured, can insurers afford to cover dog visits to the acupuncturist, the therapist and the reiki healer? We will answer this question and many more in this paws-itively engaging session on one of the fastest growing insurance markets today.
