Trupanion has been a lifesaver!

I have had Trupanion pet insurance for both my dog and cat since March and I love it! Their customer service is excellent and (outside of the very first claim which takes a bit longer to process) the turnaround on receiving reimbursement checks is excellent. They let you choose your deductible (I chose none) and they pay 90% of everything beyond the office visit cost. (Which I found was financially actually a better deal than competitors.) I am very satisfied with their service. They even think of the little details like a collar tag and insurance cards.

Wellness Rewards claim handled perfectly

I've had Embrace Pet Insurance since October 2008, and added the Wellness Rewards benefit at renewal time in 2010. This is my first dog. I chose Embrace after comparing as many pet insurance companies as I could find. My dog requires anesthesia just for an annual checkup because she is such a fighter. She also requires annual cleaning of her bad teeth. I nearly fainted when the bill for this year's checkup came to $875 because three teeth had to be extracted. Embrace picked apart the vet bill to categorize each item as possibly eligible for reimbursement under medical, dental, prescription or wellness benefits. Since I don't have dental coverage (that may change soon!) for the dog and she wasn't ill or hurt, the only thing Embrace could pay out was the Wellness Rewards. The handling of the claim was outstanding. First, I received an e-mail saying that they were splitting the claim into two claims: one for accident/illness and one for wellness benefits. Then I received another e-mail advising me that they couldn't pay on any of the dental since I don't have that coverage. That was very nicely written, and didn't come across as a cold denial like with human health insurance. The final e-mail confirmed that I would get the full $200.00 in wellness benefits. The entire process took a tad over two weeks, which is outstanding. I signed up for the direct deposit, and the money went straight into my checking account. Everything was very smooth, and the company

I was surprised with the quick response.

I was skeptical of pet insurance programs and thought that it would take a prolonged time to process the claim. I was pleasingly surprised. I think ASPCA pet insurance was timely in their response and fair in their evaluation and reimbursement.

Everyone's health insurance should be so good

I adopted a kitten, Mo, last November. My vet suggested I get pet insurance from Trupanion. I remember my dad telling me when I first bought my own health insurance-- never skimp on insurance. Well I am so happy I bought Trupanion. This month (June), my cute kitten decided to eat a shoelace. It took several visits to the PetER over the course of 2 days to diagnose why he was vomitting and lethargic. X-rays, blood tests, ultrasound and then surgery. The shoelace was stuck in his intestines and stomach. I remember when the surgeon told me how much the surgery could be, I responded, "I have a credit card and pet insurance, so do whatever you have to do". He told me some people have to put their pet down if they can't afford surgery. I cried. Trupanion did as advertised. I got a response to my claims in record time. They kept me informed of the status of the claims. And, when I brought a possible error or oversight to their attention, it was quickly rectify, with an apology. Trupanion pays 90% after deductible and exam fees, but given the cost of all the tests and surgery, my Dad and the vet were right. Buy insurance. I was out of pocket only about $600 when the bills were about $3600 I am extremely pleased with Trupanion. Mo has fully recovered and hopefully has learned not to eat shoelaces.

Thankful that I have insurance for my pets

My twin sister and I are Christian clergywomen,Lutheran tradition. We had visited family and friends in Chicago on our vacation back in 2006. We had to hurry back home because we both had unexpected funerals to prepare. Upon our arrival home on that Sunday evening my cell phone went off. It was our veterinarian. We looked forward to picking our sweet dog up on Monday Morning. We had kenneled our dog with our vet. The vet informed us that our beloved Springer Spaniel/ Burnese Mountain dog Poncho, was not doing well. We went to see him and he was completely paralyzed. Our vet suggested we get him to the Emergency Vet clinic. A wonderful surgeon, Dr. Reimer discovered Poncho had blown a disk which caused the serious paralysis.This godly man performed surgery and saved our wonderful dog. The sugery, hospitalization etc. cost over $4,000. We learned about this wonderful insurance and purchased it and it has been a blessing ever since. Our sweet Poncho passed away last Summer 2010. Our cat Toby was a stray and a wound manifested on his left flank. Several antibiotics, vet visits, and surgery but the wound would not clear up. CT Scan showed he needed more intensive surgery. Dr. Reimer performed the touchy surgery. A three inch twig was removed which was near his aorta. Dr. Reimer said that when he was a stray, he must have impaled himself on a branch. ASPCA insurance and especially the Continuing Care plan was a great blessing for us and Toby.

good customer service

First of all it was upsetting enough to learn that my dog had hip dysplasia. On top of that, I was worried that like my previous insurance company they would find some way to deny my claim. It would have made things much more difficult if the insurance company wouldn't help. I am happy to say that Embrance covered my claim.

Pet Insurance is certainly worth purchasing

After loosing one of our cats to kidney failure, and seeing the expense of her care, we decided that we wanted to protect her sister Maggie, and this year Maggie did get a urinary track infection and the ASPCA pet insurance covered more than 50 percent of the cost, and our Maggie is fine now.

Now a satisfied customer

I believe there were some growing pains with Embrace as I originally had an issue surrounging what I was told would be reimbursed and then it was not. They have really clarified their processes and over the past couple of years, I have been very pleased with their timeliness of reimbursements, clarity of coverage and customer service communication. I now recommend Embrace and my entire extended family is using their insurance with satisfaction.

Very Satisfied!

I own two beautiful Great Danes, but come Great Danes comes large medical bills! We choose embrace because of everything it offered as opposed to other companies. It far beat out the competition! We have submitted several claims to Embrace and have had quick turn around times. When they take longer than expected on a claim they send an email updating you to assure you that your claim did not fall into a "black hole" and this is even before you contact them! I am so glad to have pet insurance because with two 140 pound dogs, the bills for anything triple and quadruple that of a small to medium sized dog!
