One pet insurance provider is not necessarily like another, so it’s important to compare companies to find out which one offers what you and your pet need.
Consider these three important variables when deciding on an insurance provider: types of coverage; quality of coverage; and coverage customization.
Types of pet care coverage
Look to see if the provider offers a comprehensive policy including accidents, illness, treatments, dental, vet visit fees, follow-up care, coverage for complementary treatments, and optional preventative care plan. Embrace includes all of these, as well as accident-only coverage and Wellness Rewards – our optional routine care plan.
In addition, compare more than just data and statistics. Look at a company’s reputation and service. Embrace was one of the first pet insurance providers in the country, so we know a lot about trust, commitment, and the bond between pets and their families.

Exam fee coverage
Many pet insurance companies don’t cover the cost of the exam fee – that’s like having to pay an extra deductible for every claim. Embrace covers the exam fee for all covered accidents and illnesses.
Personalized pet policies
Get the same great nose-to-tail accident and illness insurance no matter how you personalize it. Pick your annual maximum, annual deductible, and reimbursement percentage to fit your needs and budget.
We understand that you have options when it comes to picking the best pet insurance for your furry friend. That’s why we’ve put together some helpful information to consider in your research journey.
Are vet exam fees covered?
Yes. Sometimes just walking into the vet’s office can cost you upwards of $100. Many pet insurance companies do not cover your vet’s exam fee. When a pet insurance company doesn’t cover the exam fee, it’s almost like paying an extra deductible on every single claim you file.
How much coverage do I need?
Only you can decide how much coverage you need. We typically recommend getting the highest coverage that you can comfortably afford.
