Pet Insurance that Stands Out from the Pack

Heart icon for Optional Routine Care

Optional Routine Care

Embrace reimburses you for routine care like vaccinations, grooming, training classes, and more through our Wellness Rewards plan. There are no itemized limits and you can use it the day you sign up.

Piggy bank icon for Healthy Pet Deductible

Healthy Pet Deductible

The Healthy Pet Deductible is the pet insurance industry’s only diminishing deductible. For every year you don’t receive a claim reimbursement we’ll reduce your deductible by $50 the next year.

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 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.

What to Look for When Comparing Policies

Not all pet insurance is created equal. Embrace is open and honest about what we cover and what we don't cover to help you choose the best plan for your pet.

  • Heart in Shield icon for What Is and Isn't Covered
    What Is and Isn’t Covered
    Embrace covers accidents and illnesses for dogs and cats, including hereditary and congenital conditions no matter the breed. Some pet insurance companies have exclusions for pets if they are not spayed/neutered or because of their breed.
  • Percent in Circle icon for How You're Reimbursed
    How You’re Reimbursed
    Embrace reimburses you based on the vet bill that you paid, not what we think the bill should have been. Watch out for pet insurance plans that reimburse using a benefit schedule or that has “per-item” limitations.
  • Calendar icon for Deductible Type
    Deductible Type
    Every Embrace policy has an annual deductible, which means you only have to meet it one time in a policy year. Some pet insurance companies make you meet a deductible for every condition that may arise in your pet’s life.
  • Circled Dollar Sign icon for Cost of Insurance
    Cost of Insurance
    Getting an affordable pet insurance plan is possible. Since Embrace offers one comprehensive policy, you get the same coverage no matter how it’s personalized. Some pet insurance companies charge higher premiums for more coverage.

We’re Proud of Our High Ratings

Still have questions? Take a look at our FAQs.

Is my pet covered for life?

Yes. We will never drop your pet or reduce their coverage based on age, health status, or claims you’ve filed. Once you’re signed up, we do not cancel coverage for anything other than non-payment of premium.

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.

Mind if we pay your vet bills?
