Hereditary & Genetic Condition Coverage
Many companies leave you exposed with no coverage for genetic conditions. Embrace covers them. Hereditary and breed-specific conditions can lie dormant for years and when they do show signs it can be very expensive to treat them. VPI has limited coverage for hereditary or genetic conditions, with a max payout of $750 per year. These conditions often total several thousands of dollars to treat.
There's more to pet insurance than just your premium. If you want a large portion of your vet bills covered then you need to pick the right sort of plan. At Embrace, all of our plans reimburse your claim as a percentage of your actual vet bill so you get more back. VPI's benefit schedule dictates the most you can get back. We often see vet bills for a given condition 20-50% more than what their benefit schedule allows.

Wellness & Routine Care Coverage
Embrace’s Wellness Rewards is a stand-alone routine care plan to help you pay for the routine care of your vet. If your vet charges $100 for a puppy wellness visit, that’s how much Embrace will reimburse. VPI places limits on wellness payments per item or category (e.g. flea, tick, and heartworm meds are capped at $50/year). View our comparison on routine care.
In addition to minimal payout on hereditary conditions, VPI also excludes any payment for these conditions during your first 12 months as a policy holder. Cruciate ligaments, meniscal damage, and angular limb deformity also have 12-month waiting periods. Cruciate ligament tears typically cost $3,500 to treat. Embrace does have a 6-month waiting period on orthopedic conditions, but this can be waived down to 14 days by having your vet fill out our orthopedic report card.
Don't be nickel and dimed with extra fees. VPI has a $2 monthly payment fee and requires two months payment up front.
