The insurance company Lemonade has announced that it now offers pet insurance in 33 states.

Lemonade Insurance Company, which offers homeowner and renters insurance, has announced that it is now offering pet health insurance. Coverage is available exclusively for cats and dogs in 33 states, at a monthly cost starting at $12 dollars per pet. Insurance coverage includes diagnostics, procedures, medications, accidents, and illnesses.

“As pet parents ourselves, we found the existing options to be lacking, so we built a product for cats and dogs from the ground up. This means an insurance policy that’s short and easy to understand, and a user experience created with the pet, and their parent, at its core. We’re excited to make pet health insurance so affordable and accessible,” said Shai Wininger, Lemonade’s co-founder and CEO, in a recent press release.

Customers have the option to add extensions onto their pet’s insurance policy. The Preventative and Wellness package covers vaccinations and wellness exams. The Extended Accident and Illness package will help cover more advanced treatments and veterinary care.

Lemonade also will donate any unused premium costs from each policy to an animal-focused charity.
