Our four-legged friends have a knack for batting at trouble. And in Massachusetts, they don’t have reach far to find it. Trouble can come from a crazy critter encounter, harsh weather, or even inside of your own home.
We don’t have to tell you that Massachusetts can be a pricey place to live – and the vet bills certainly follow suit. Pet insurance ensures that you can afford to give your best friend the best care no matter the cost.
We've plowed through claims from the Bay State, and the most common ones are exactly what you'd expect:
These pesky flying insects are host to parasites and diseases that can be spread to your pet pal, and, shockingly, they’re active pretty much all year long in many eastern states – including Massachusetts.
Known to live in both urban and rural areas, wild coyotes can be predatory and territorial in nature. They often hunt early in the morning and late in the evening when it’s harder to spot them.
Unexpected accidents lurk just around the corner – from slipping on ice, ingesting something toxic, or an injury from running with the big dogs at the park. You certainly can’t plan for the unexpected, but you can always be prepared with pet insurance.
Massachusetts may not be known for heatwaves in summer, but the cold winters here have quite the reputation. While guarded by fur, pets are still at risk for frostbite, illnesses, and even hypothermia.
Copperheads and timber rattlesnakes call Massachusetts home. Easily agitated and possessing deadly venom, they’re a surprise your curious pet doesn’t want to find while exploring the backyard.
No networks, no hassle. With Embrace Pet Insurance you can visit any general, specialist or emergency veterinarian in Massachusetts, across the United States, or even around the globe. No matter what licensed vet you see, you’re covered.
Personalize a policy for your best bud (and budget) by picking your deductible, your annual maximum, and your reimbursement percentage. The cost of a pet insurance policy varies by breed, Zip Code, and a few additional factors.

Breed-Specific & Genetic Conditions
What’s Not Covered?
While no pet insurance covers pre-existing conditions – Embrace included – we do distinguish between curable and incurable pre-existing conditions and cover curable conditions after your pet is symptom- and treatment-free for 12 months.
We also do not cover cosmetic procedures (declawing, ear cropping, tail docking, etc.), breeding and whelping, DNA testing, or cloning.
For routine and preventative care, we offer a flexible Wellness Rewards plan, which is the purrfect complement to your insurance policy.
With Embrace, pet insurance is simple: Visit any vet, submit a claim, and we get to work reimbursing you.
We make the claims process so easy your pet could practically do it. Get an itemized invoice and the diagnosis from your vet. That's all you need when you submit your claim via your MyEmbrace Customer Account – because who has time to print and fax or snail mail? Voila. You’re done!
We even offer direct deposit so you can get reimbursed quicker.
