Wagmo pet health insurance is now available in Texas, raising to 13 the number of states where the company’s injury and illness coverage is sold to dog and cat owners.
Wagmo, which expanded into California and New York in August, launched its insurance plans in 2020. Its other product, Wagmo Wellness preventive care coverage, was introduced in 2018 and can be found nationwide.
News of the Texas licensing approval was accompanied by word of a strategic partnership with Boost Insurance, which offers an infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) digital insurance platform.
“Wagmo’s mission is perfectly aligned with Boost’s,” said Alex Maffeo, the CEO and founder of Boost. “They are transforming the pet insurance industry by applying an insurtech solution. We partnered with Wagmo to help power their planned growth.”
Wagmo promotes a 72-hour turnaround on pet insurance claims and 24-hour turnaround on wellness claims.
The company also is licensed to sell pet insurance in Arizona, Colorado, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee and Virginia.
