BASIC – Pet Wellness Reimbursement

BASIC – Pet Wellness Reimbursement

BASIC – Pet Wellness Reimbursement

Sep 13, 2021, 2 Minute Read

Many employers have shifted to either temporary or permanent work-from-home policies due to the pandemic. As a result, a large percentage of employees have spent more time at home and around their pets.

An essential part of the family, pets offer companionship and comfort, however, they also require care. And pet care can be expensive and stressful. To help address the costs and stress of pet care, employers should offer a pet wellness reimbursement account. The benefit acknowledges the importance that pets play in employees’ lives and comes at a time when quality-of-life issues have played an increasing role in how people select their employers.

Reimbursable pet expenses are determined by the employer and can be tailored to the employee’s specific needs. Benefit funds can be used for expenses such as food, grooming, training classes, pet insurance, boarding, and the purchase or adoption of a pet.

Plus, pet wellness reimbursement funds can be used for travel harnesses, dog walking fees, automatic feeders, and many other expenses to help employees that will be returning to the workplace with or without their pets.

Pet Wellness Reimbursement Benefits

Why Pet Benefits Matter

Appreciated by all pet owners, pet wellness reimbursements are a fringe benefit that gives employees the financial flexibility to improve the lives of their pets and even their own.

With BASIC’s Fringe Benefit Accounts, employers can offer reimbursement funds for different lifestyle expenses including gender affirmation, fertility, pet wellness, and other similar expenses that aren’t included in traditional benefits packages.

To learn more, check out the BASIC website and contact us at 800.696.4543 or for assistance when you’re ready to enroll a group in a BASIC plan.
