ASPCA pet insurance vs. Lemonade comparison

Both Lemonade and ASPCA pet insurance plans include coverage for vet bills related to accidents and illnesses, but it’s important to understand the differences so you can find the perfect fit for you and your furry companion. 

Lemonade Pet can handle claims at lightning speed and offers extra opportunities for discounts—like for bundling more than one Lemonade insurance product.

Let’s get into the nitty gritty of how ASPCA stacks up to Lemonade Pet.

The Lemonade app revolutionizes insurance and claims handling, making the process smoother and more user-friendly than ASPCA 

Lemonade Pet elevates pet insurance through the power of AI and machine learning. The Lemonade app is designed to streamline everything from getting a quote to filing a claim, turning what used to be a cumbersome process into an experience that’s quick and easy (and maybe even a little fun).

When you buy a Lemonade Pet policy—and any other Lemonade policy—you can customize your coverage details, all in the palm of your hand. The app’s intuitive design means you could spend less time figuring out your policy, and more time enjoying life with your furry friend.

Tech also helps Lemonade process claims at lightning speed, with roughly 50% of Lemonade Pet claims being handled instantly and around 80% of claims handled within 5 days. 

ASPCA also offers a mobile app, but their process doesn’t leverage the same level of AI integration and mobile-first design. Plus, with ASPCA it could take up to 30 days to settle your claim.

ASPCA focuses solely on pet insurance. Lemonade offers more than just pet insurance, so you can cover the things you care about in one place—and become eligible for bundle discounts

At Lemonade, we’re not just about keeping your furry friends happy and healthy, we’ve got your back on other fronts too. Think of us as your one-stop-shop for insurance needs—with Lemonade offering renters, homeowners, car, pet, and term life insurance.

When you bundle any combination of Lemonade policies together you’ll be eligible for savings on all of those policies. (With the exception of the term life insurance policy, but you’d still be eligible for a discount on your pet policy if you bundle life and pet.)  

In addition to the obvious savings, you gain the convenience of accessing all your policies—and filing all claims—through a single, easy-to-use app.

Let’s say you bundle a Lemonade pet insurance policy with a Lemonade Renters policy. You could see a drop in both of your premiums, making both essential coverages more affordable.

On the flip side, ASPCA focuses solely on pet insurance, which means you might find yourself juggling multiple insurers or platforms for your other insurance needs, and you’d miss out on those sweet bundle discounts. 

ASPCA pet health insurance discounts are more limited, while Lemonade Pet offers loads of discounts to help pet parents save

At Lemonade Pet we understand that every penny counts. That’s why we offer discounts that could make managing your pet care expenses more manageable, including:

  • Annual payment discount: If you pay for your policy on an annual basis instead of monthly
  • Multi-pet discount: If you have a Lemonade policy for more than one cat or dog
  • Bundle discounts: If you have other Lemonade policies, like renters, homeowners, or car insurance

While ASPCA pet insurance does offer a multi-pet discount, they don’t offer discounts for annual payment or bundling.

Tips for comparing pet insurance plans

Finding the right pet insurance for you and your fur fam depends a lot on your priorities, whether that’s finding the most comprehensive coverage, the cheapest rates, a hassle-free digital experience, and so much more. 

Let’s swing through some of the main factors that might be important to you when choosing a pet insurance provider, and some questions to consider for each.

Coverage options

Base pet insurance plans typically cover the treatment of eligible accidents and illnesses. Check the specifics of what’s covered under a base policy, the waiting periods for certain conditions, and exclusions. Also look for how customizable the policy is and what optional coverages are offered—like preventative care, and add-ons.

Balance between cost and coverage

The scope of what’s included in the price of a base pet insurance plan can vary widely among providers, and might require a more intricate comparison. Carefully examine the premiums, deductibles, and co-insurance offered by each provider, then compare it to the range of healthcare services covered, and what you might end up needing to pay if you file a claim. 

Discounts and perks

Who doesn’t love saving some greens, or making life as a pet parent a tad simpler? Some pet insurance providers—including Lemonade—offer discounts for things like insuring multiple pets and bundling policies, as well as extra perks, like access to Chewy’s Connect with a Vet service. 

Option to bundle

Some providers only offer pet insurance plans, while others can cover all the things you care about in one place—like your stuff, your car, and your pets. For example, when you bundle more than one Lemonade policy such as renters, homeowners, car, or pet insurance, you could be eligible for a discount on each policy, on top of enjoying the ease of managing all of your policies, and filing any claims, in one place (we’re talking about the Lemonade app).

Seamless experience

From building a quote, to managing your policy, to filing a claim—remember that insurance doesn’t need to be a hassle. Some insurance companies—including Lemonade—built their platforms with user-friendliness in mind, ensuring that each step is straightforward and stress-free for pet parents.

Customer reviews

Getting the inside scoop from the pet parent community about their experiences with their pet insurance provider can help you make a more informed choice. Websites like Consumer Reports, Better Business Bureau (BBB), NerdWallet are reputable sources for customer reviews and rankings of pet insurance companies. (Did we mention that the Lemonade app has a 4.9 star rating on the App Store?)

Social impact

Choosing a pet insurance that vibes with your values is the cherry on top of an awesome policy sundae. Some providers support causes you care about such as animal rescue shelters and animal rights organizations—like the Lemonade Giveback, which helps support organizations like SPCA International and The Humane Society.
