What is Pet Insurance?
Pet insurance reimburses you for your dog or cat’s unexpected medical bills. Whether you live in the Smokey Mountains or in downtown Charlotte we’ll help you find the perfect pet insurance plan in the Carolina’s..
How it works.
Your pet is treated at any veterinarian for sickness or injury. You submit the bill to Figo for reimbursement by simply snapping a photo of your vet bill. Then, you upload the photo via Figo’s Pet Cloud mobile app to be reimbursed for the costs in an average of 7 days. It’s that easy.
Why do you need it?
Advancements in veterinary medicine save more pets than ever, and those treatments can be really expensive. The image above details the cost of common treatments for dogs:

Things You Need to Know
We know pet insurance can be confusing. Here are a few things to keep in mind.
Veterinary Exam Fees
This one is important. Believe it or not, some carriers won’t pay your veterinary examination fee related to a covered illness or injury. We do.
As with all pet insurance companies, Figo excludes pre-existing conditions. This means a condition that first occurred or showed clinical signs before your pet’s coverage started, including waiting periods.
Co-Pay and Reimbursement
These can be confusing. The “co-pay” is the amount you pay and the “reimbursement” is the amount Figo pays. You can choose from various reimbursements. 70%, 80, 90% and 100%
Some companies require you to pay a deductible for each new illness or injury that occurs. They call it “Per Condition,” we call it “Not Cool.” With Figo, your deductibles are for the entire year of your coverage. You meet your deductible. You’re done.
These vary widely between companies. With Figo, we require a 14-day waiting period for illnesses. But we know things happen — that’s why we only require a 5-day waiting period for accidents. The waiting period begins the day you buy coverage.
Here’s the deal…If your pet has an illness or injury, and it is not a pre-existing condition, you’re covered. Period.
BTW Did we tell you that we even cover the veterinary exam fees related to the illness or injury 🙂
