        I have recently found out my cat has cancer. I submitted all prior medical records and two claims to cover the initial costs for the exams. I'm being told it can take up to two weeks for this to be back in my account. She has never had a pre-existing condition and I'm so sick because the bills are rising and this insurance company is not doing anything. Why pay a monthly premium and do everything they ask, and it's complete silence while your pet is sick and needs help. I'm running out of money and no answer from them on at least where they are in the process is frustrating and stressful during a time that is difficult already. This is the whole reason I got insurance is in case my pet is sick and I can't get any help here. You should really be more responsive and let your customers know where the claims are in the process and it shouldn't take this long to be paid back.

        Cost to sign up our 3 yr old tabby with no prior medical issues was $209. Then a year later they increased premium to $420. Their only explanation was that the cost of writing insurance policies had increased, so they had to adjust their premiums accordingly. See ya later, Figo!

          Do not buy this insurance. It's a total bait and switch. They have attractive rates when you start, but last year my premium went up 25%, and they said it was a adjustment to level their prices with other companies. I just got my annual increase, and this year it went up over 30%. Their prices go up faster than even my own health care costs. They will respond to this and other postings saying they will work with you, but all that means is that they will adjust your coverage to make your monthly payment lower, but you are also giving up coverage or raising your deductibles. My dog is only 2 and has been very healthy. There is no reason for these types of increases except pure greed on their part.

          I had Figo on my little puppy. I also paid extra to cover vet visits. I submitted three separate claims and they denied all of them. They gave me the runaround on why they declined my claims. They had no intention on paying the claims so my advice cancel this insurance if you have it and find an insurance that actually works. Don’t waste your money on this one. You won’t see a dime of the money owed to you.

          Original review: July 30, 2018

          We were covered by FIGO from July 2017 until July 2018. Prior to coverage effect we took our kitten to our vet for her first check-up and she was found healthy. We submitted the records to FIGO as required. During the first several months, they refused every claim for our 4 month old kitten asserting everything was a "pre-existing condition".

          By October 2017 I was fed-up, so I sent them a strongly worded letter where I explained in part: "Every insurance contract has an unwritten, invisible, or implied term referred to as the covenant or promise of good faith and fair dealing. This is a promise imposed by law upon an insurance company to always act fairly towards its insured in handling their claims. Denying benefits, delaying payments and paying less than what is owed are examples of acting unreasonably and constitute bad faith. Other actions or inactions that may be bad faith are if the insurance carrier fails to thoroughly and promptly investigate your claim. In my estimation the apparent failure to investigate my claim leading to the unwarranted denial of said claim is gross mismanagement needling dangerously close to the appearance of bad faith insurance practices."

          I then threatened to report them (FIGO) to our State Department of Insurance. After this, they paid my claim and I never heard from them again. They always paid every claim. (Suspicious action in my estimation. I believe they didn't want to have someone investigating their practices.) Now, here at the end of July, it is time to renew our policy. They hiked up our rate 100 percent! For a healthy 1 year old cat! They also did so with zero transparency. They sent an email out in June explaining "some states could potentially see a rate increase".

          They then gave no information as to which states would see an increase or by what amount. They instructed us to log-in and see if we would be affected. We did and we were not. 3 weeks later, we still were not affected. Then today, when payment for the next year would be due, we found they increased the rate 100 percent. We are so disgusted by this company and advise you strongly to avoid it like the plague! Companies like this one should be shamed out of business.

          Expect slow processing and then if you have a question or complaint, someone to argue with you about how you don’t know how insurance works. Not happy so far. They want vet records for everything uploaded and then it just sits there in an uploaded file. Have been paying premiums but have not received a payment for anything yet.

            Figo Pet Insurance questions and answers

            What problem is Figo Pet Insurance trying to solve?
            We felt the pet insurance industry could use a revamp. In an industry void of technology we decided to build a company based on technology. From the beginning we had the user experience in mind. Our goal was to make life easier for people and their pets by addressing the many pain points that come with pet ownership and creating a solution for that. We are so much more than just insurance.
            What sets Figo Pet Insurance apart from the competition?
            Our pet insurance product is well thought-out, we try to be transparent with our clients on what is covered and what is not covered. Our plans are affordable and customizable so you can select your deductible and reimbursement. Figo is "paperless" everything, the process can be done online through our pet cloud and that includes filing a claim. To file a claim, just take a picture of the bill, upload it and answer a few questions and you will get paid electronically. Our technology sets us apart.
            What needs do your product or service fulfill, and how does Figo Pet Insurance fulfill those needs better than your competition?
            Technology makes life easier if done well. More than just insurance our free pet cloud stores all your pets records, which is great to have if your pet has an emergency. Other features of the cloud allow you to find a vet, groomer, dog park, pet hotel and more in your area. Our pet tags, that we give free, help reunite owners with their lost pet if they ever go missing. The shots and reminders portion of the pet cloud keeps all your shots and vaccinations up to date and sends alerts to your phone when your pets shots are about to expire. These are just a few features of the cloud the rest can be seen on our website.
            What’s the most common misconception consumers have about the pet insurance industry?
            The industry as a whole has a stigma that pet insurance does not pay. Figo Pet Insurance tries the best to communicate with our customers what is covered and what is not covered.
