I really wish insurance companies for us humans acted like this. My three-year-old dachshund just underwent emergency back surgery on the 14th of September. The total bill was 4,622.12 and I just got an email on the 7th informing me that they are paying 3,294.32, which is fantastic! (I have a 20% co-pay and a 500.00 deductable.) I love this company. Everyone is always courteous and professional. They send you an email to let you know that they received your claim form. They send another email if they think things are backed up a little, but seriously, 3 weeks is incredibly fast compared to my own insurance company. They even send another email to make sure you received your check. Who does that these days? Their customer service is incredible. I've heard nightmare stories about other companies. Embrace is truly the best insurance company out there. You will not be disappointed.
