We like Embrace here at ValuePenguin for their dedication and empathic approach to pet insurance and pet owners.

Consider this if you want pet insurance that covers wellness and veterinary care, and don't mind an annual limit.

Pros

  • We like that Embrace will cover any treatment plan your veterinarian suggests. So long as your veterinarian deems that it is needed for your pet's health, Embrace will likely reimburse you for it. This can include diagnostics, lab tests, surgery doctor, nursing, hospital fees, follow-up care, or rehabilitation
  • Embrace’s customer service gets rave reviews from other pet parents, and our calls have always been handled very knowledgeably
  • Healthy Pet Deductible: this seems to be a relatively new and unique feature to Embrace. The deductible on your pet insurance policy drops by $50 every year that you don’t have any claims reimbursed

Cons

  • While the coverage can be generous and the peace of mind great, the premiums you pay each month reflect that
  • In New York, prescription medicine care is a separate addition on top of your monthly premium
