Pet InsurTech Kanguro officially launches health insurance plans for pets


Pet InsurTech Kanguro, which is on a mission to reinvent the world of pet insurance, has officially launched its health insurance plans for pets.

Kanguro describes itself as the only InsurTech offering an end-to-end customer experience that is 100% bilingual (Spanish and English) and 100% digital.

The company’s vision is simple: to modernise the insurance experience for Spanish-speaking Americans. With its strong focus on digital innovation and bilingual customer service, Kanguro Insurance aims to modernise the pet insurance industry in the US.

According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), 68% of US households have a pet, and vet bills continue to rise. Kanguro Insurance offers a fully customisable, conceptually similar coverage to human health insurance, where policyholders pay a monthly premium, covering a wide range of veterinary visits, diagnostic tests, surgical procedures, and medications. This coverage plan provides peace of mind to pet parents and allows them to focus on their pet’s health and wellbeing.

Kanguro Insurance is a fully digital company, offering a 24/7 mobile app for claims handling, where policyholders can easily request reimbursements for vet bills, access the content hub, exclusive discounts for treats, grooming, and boarding, and the digital vaccination card via the Kanguro cloud.

Since its launch in September 2022, the start-up has sold more than 1,000 policies.

Andres Mishaan, CEO of Kanguro, said, “After years of working in the insurance industry, we recognized the need for a better experience when interacting with insurance coverages for everyday needs. With Kanguro Insurance, we’re committed to delivering a modern and personalized experience that makes it easy to protect your pets’ health and wellbeing.

“We’re excited about the future of Kanguro Insurance and our plans for growth and expansion. Our goal is to become the go-to InsurTech for pet parents across the United States, and we’re committed to delivering the best possible service and value to our customers.”

Earlier this year Kanguro launched its offering in Florida as it set out to expand its US footprint.
