What's Not Covered

No pet insurance company covers pre-existing conditions, but Embrace’s cat insurance plan separates curable and incurable conditions to help you get the most coverage. Worried about pre-existing conditions? Request a Medical History Review. Other exclusions include cosmetic procedures, DNA testing, breeding, and pregnancy.

Some factors that determine pet insurance plan cost can’t be changed. But Embrace lets you customize other elements to build the best cat insurance policy that fits your budget.

Your Cat's Breed

Certain cat breeds are prone to different genetic conditions, so the premium reflects that.

Your Cat's Age

Aging cats are at higher risk and cost more to insure since they are more susceptible to injuries and illnesses.

Veterinary rates vary based on location, so pet insurance companies consider that in your payment.
