Well here is some info off the health insurance site for now until we can get the details from the person who told me about it:
I did a quote for 1 rabbit (4 years old) It came out to $120 for the year or $12 per month.
You can visit any vet WORLDWIDE, $50 deductable (per incident) It seems like a good deal- of course there are limits on how much they will pay but im begining to think that having them pay SOMETHING is better then nothing!
Here is info directly from the site:
The VPI Avian & Exotic Pet Plan helps pay for lab fees, treatments, prescriptions, X-rays, surgery and hospitalization for accidental injuries and illnesses for birds and other exotic pets.
Our plan covers thousands of conditions ranging from minor problems such as delayed molt to respiratory ailments, pneumonia and even cancer. Here are just a few examples of the Avian benefit schedule:

With a VPI policy, you have the freedom to obtain the best care for your pet. When your pet is ill or requires emergency treatment you won't want the additional stress of worrying about how you will pay the veterinary bill. You'll have other things on your mind. So, we keep our claim process simple.
- See any licensed veterinarian or specialist worldwide.
- Pay for the visit at the time of service.
- Have an authorized veterinary staff member fill out the claim form by listing the diagnosis and signing it.
- Sign and mail the claim form with the original veterinary invoice to VPI.
Your claim is adjusted based on your plan's Benefit Schedule. Both the VPI Superior Plan
VPI Standard Plan
policies will pay 90% of the plan's Benefit Schedule
allowance, per incident, during each policy term after the deductible for eligible expenses.
All VPI policies function as indemnity insurance. We restore financial loss within the limits of the policy in case of an unforeseen event.
