Worst insurance company for pets

My pet who is 11 months old developed pneumonia. Figo will not reimburse ans of the $2500 claims submitted because one of the possible causes could be roundworm, not that it was, just because it COULD BE!! I pay over 130 per month for two dogs and have had not one cent reimbursed for anything. My vet even called to defend the claim and provide collateral and agreed at thr absurdity of their denial. Thanks for nothing Figo

Stay away from this insurer

Terrible. They cover very little and while -filing- a claim is easy, it is after you file the claim that the nightmare begins. For EVERY claim they want the medical documentation from the beginning of time. Are they not capable of keeping records so I dont have to hunt down the vet for duplicate paperwork every time??? I NEVER had to do this with my previous insurance, file a claim and done. With Figo it is file a claim, keep providing a ton of paperwork every time only to be denied payment. Their actual coverage sucks

FIGO makes it easy when you need to make an emergency decision.

I’ve used FIGO for all my GSDs for the past 7 years. Very easy to work with. Great coverage! Knowing they have my dogs backs have made it very easy during the emergency situations. Knowing that money isn’t an issue, that will limit their care is a big relief!! Most other companies have limits.

Cold/heartless company - will find every excuse to not help when needed

In the beginning, FIGO seemed great. Reasonable rates, service dog discounts, easy to use app. Then they stopped with the service dog discounts & rates started going up. We had FIGO coverage from 4/2017 - 4/2021, had some financial hardships and had to cancel our service temporarily. Got back on our feet, got coverage again 10/2021, and then lymphoma hit. My service dog was diagnosed with Lymphoma 10/23/21 and passed 11/21/21. All of my claims were denied due to symptoms showing up during the illness waiting period. This was my only claim in 5 years. I got a big middle finger, so sorry, thanks for the money, you’re on your own. No compassion, no help. They made sure that the “policy” was written just so, symptoms appeared and they won’t help cover anything. What’s the point of insurance if they won’t help when it’s needed? But they are making millions from their customers. This has been the WORST experience, absolutely no help when we needed. All appeals have been denied. Would never recommend such a cold/heartless business. Future pups will be covered by other insurance providers.

Deceitful.

Do not go with FIGO. I have been paying ~$50/month to insure my healthy 4 year old rescue dog. We adopted her in Feb 2020, submitted all known vet records to FIGO, and they happily allowed me to enter into a plan and collect my monthly premium. Of course, the first instance we take her to the vet and file a claim (which would just have put us at our deductible), they email saying the require more detailed notes and SOAP notes. I copied our vet on the email thread and have sent every lick of paperwork available on our dog over to FIGO and it is still not enough for them to cover anything. I find it intentionally deceitful that they would allow us to enter into a policy knowing full well that they did not have the back records that they would require to ever actually be of service to us. Also, we had FIGO for our last dog who has since passed. She went to the same vet as our current dog, and we never had an issue with her vet notes lacking detail. The reporting hasn't changed, but perhaps the management of FIGO has. 0/10, waste of money and waste of time.
