Hereditary & Genetic Condition Coverage
Many companies leave you exposed with no coverage for genetic conditions. VPI has limited coverage for hereditary or genetic conditions, with a maximum payout of $750 per year. These conditions can lie dormant for years and when they do show signs it can be very expensive to treat them, often totalling several thousands of dollars to treat. You can rest easy knowing Embrace covers hereditary and genetic conditions with every policy.
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. VPI's benefit schedule dictates the maximum amounts you can get back. We often see vet bills for a given condition come to 20-50% more than what their benefit schedule allows. At Embrace, all of our plans reimburse your claim as a percentage of your actual vet bill so you get more money back.

Wellness & Routine Care Coverage
VPI places limits on wellness payments per item or category (e.g. flea, tick, and heartworm meds are capped at $50/year). Embrace's Wellness Rewards is a stand-alone plan to help you pay for your pet's routine care. If your vet charges $100 for a puppy wellness visit, that's how much Embrace will reimburse. View our comparison on routine care.
In addition to minimal payout for 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 has a 6-month waiting period for orthopedic conditions, but this can be shortened to 14 days by having your vet fill out our simple 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.
