Worth every penny

My cat has a hyperactive thyroid which didn't present itself until he had a seizure. Of course, the seizure landed him in an emergency veterinarian facility (it was a Sunday night) where he had to undergo numerous tests (to determine what was wrong) and be put in an oxygen cubicle because he was hyperventilating. Thank god I had the foresight to get ASPCA pet insurance for him and my other cats years ago. This was the first time I had to use it for any of them, and I'm so thankful for it!

Good but not incredible

I had my dog diagnosed with lymphoma. She had two operations to remove enlarged lymph nodes. I found a place that had very good rates, a lot cheaper than the ASPCA itself (Bergh Hospital). Insurance technically pays 80% of reasonable costs, which means that they will pay 80% of what is determined to be the appropriate cost within your location. They ended up paying approximately 65% of my cost -- meaning that my costs were higher than the "reasonable". However I know that I paid very competitive prices, the same if not lower than the average in my area. The response time to claims is inconsistent, but overall a month after submitting the claim (if they didn't need the vet's records sent over). Sometimes it takes them too long to acknowledge they received the records (once, more than a month) Continuous care is an add-on for chronic illness. This covers illnesses that exceed one term. It is good but not so good: It pays a maximum lifetime and after that you're on your own because after that it is a pre-existing condition. I guess this will be the case with all the insurances, but it does limit what you get after one chronic disease is diagnosed. In a way, a dog like mine with cancer is likely to have complications that will not be covered because cancer is the ultimate cause, and then insurance becomes irrelevant... A question here says "would you recommend this company to other pet owners?" --- I think there may be better plans, certainly, but considering that

Highly recommended- follow their guidelines, fab!

They took the "uggh!" out of the pet care experience. Pet's Best was easy to enroll in, definitely easy to submit claims, the processing is super-quick, especially if you sign up for direct deposit (really? yes! They have direct deposit into your newly pet-care emptied account! :-) ). They have an odd thing about a 3 day waiting period for an accident (I understand the 2 week waiting period for an illness), but statistically, you're probably ok on this. The customer service explained things clearly and calmly before I signed up (even while I was doing my comparative research), and when Monty-cat got hurt a year into coverage, they paid the claim. Am SO grateful I had pet health insurance! And am so grateful it was with Pet's Best (had another, not-to-named company before, which was pretty underhanded). Thank you, Pets Best! The pricing is in the middle of the pack, but the service and honesty is the best, so it's unquestionably the best value I found. I highly recommend Pets Best coverage for your pet. I hope you needn't use it; but promise you that, if you do, Pet's Best will make it as easy as they can.

Fast

Our dog became ill and we had to take him to an afterhours vet. He was given meds and the next day I filed the claim with the insurance company. Their response and handling time was very fast! Definitely a monthly premium well spent!

Prompt processing of surgical claim

The claim was submitted and processed within prompt fashion. The level of service has been positive for my Puggle's four years as a beneficiary of this insurance. The surgical appointment turned out to be benign but it was good to know that the pet coverage covered the services. She is back to being her spunky self.

Wellness Claims are SUPER FAST!

I submitted my wellness claim paperwork last Friday, July 5th. I just got an email saying it has been processed and will be in my account in 2 days. Thankfully I've never had to submit an injury or illness claims but Embrace is very quick about processing wellness claims!

blind

I am a first time cat owner & researched which pet insurance would be good. I thought Embrace had good coverage but probably, due to lack of experience and understanding of the coverage, I feel after submitting one claim, it may not be for me. I don't understand how I pay for a premium every month & the reimbursement I gave for claim, matches a portion of what I pay for the premium. My claim did not get fully covered. After taking time to submit the claim, in the end, most of the payment is out of pocket. I could have paid out of pocket without the insurance. Bottom line, I reviewing whether I should keep the insurance; even though, the process went smoothly.
