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:

Avian Medical ProblemBenefit AllowanceSelf-mutilation behavior$285.00Egg binding surgical$465.00Aspergillosis (fungal respiratory infection)$400.00Neoplasia surgical$460.00

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.

  1. See any licensed veterinarian or specialist worldwide.
  2. Pay for the visit at the time of service.
  3. Have an authorized veterinary staff member fill out the claim form by listing the diagnosis and signing it.
  4. Sign and mail the claim form with the original veterinary invoice to VPI.

Benefit Schedules
Your claim is adjusted based on your plan's Benefit Schedule. Both the VPI Superior Plan and the
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.

Thanks so much. I will look into it for next year since the vet wants to see my rabbits twice next year. I also have a dog, four cats and a bird to pay vet bills on. Next month my dog goes in to have her teeth cleaned. I can hardly wait to get my income tax refund in the mail!
