Subject: Re: ferret health insurance
I just got a phone call from the pet insurance company who is starting to enroll ferrets as part of their health coverage. they definitely don't know much about ferrets at all, so this may be very short lived coverage once they find out the full health needs of our fuzzy friends.
sable and albino were not listed as colors on their color chart for ferrets, so my babies are now brown and white. their monthly insuance premium is 13.25 per month each, and they're not sure if they will cover my albino who has had adrenal surgery. very strange, since that's probably already eliminated as a possible expense to them. they require full medical records for a one year period to review on any ferret that has ever had a health problem of any kind. the policy goes into effect 2 weeks from the date it's written.
the insurance info is on the april 5, 2001 archive of FHL for anyone needing the info. i don't have it written down, the insurance company called me back from my initial call on april 5.
hope this insurance remains in effect for awhile.
