How does Figo Pet Insurance work?
Figo Pet Insurance reimburses you for vet costs for your dogs or cats when they have unexpected injuries or illness, according to the terms of your plan. You pay a monthly fee for coverage; you can visit any licensed vet in the world, then file a claim for reimbursement.
The company recommends using the Figo Pet Cloud app to file a claim; however, you can also complete the claims process online, by phone, by fax or by email — you just need a copy of your paid invoice and your pet’s medical records. Figo has takes an average of three days to close a claim (two days if the company has medical records). You can be reimbursed via direct deposit or mailed check. Depending on your plan, you may have an unlimited annual benefit or a reimbursement level of up to 100%.
Figo offers a diminishing deductible, and the copy and deductible are waived for emergency life-saving treatment in the case of an accident (does not apply to illnesses). Holistic care is also included in the base policy.
What does Figo Pet Insurance cover?
When your dog or cat has a new injury, accident or illness, Figo covers costs for the following:
- Emergency and hospitalization
- Cancer treatment
- Lab and diagnostic testing
- Prosthetics and orthopedics
- Hereditary and congenital conditions
- Chronic conditions
- Food and Drug Administration-approved prescriptions
Figo does not cover:

Figo offers three add-on coverage options:

- Extra Care Pack: The Extra care pack helps cover costs for cremation and burial (up to $250), lost pet advertising and award, vacation cancellation caused by a pet emergency, board fees, pet theft or loss caused by straying (up to $150) and third-party property damage liability (up to $10,000 per policy period and subject to a separate deductible).
- Wellness: You can add routine care coverage to any plan to help pay for the cost of vaccinations, spaying or neutering, heartworm prevention, dental care and more. The company offers a Basic and Plus wellness add-on — the Plus add-on has higher annual maximums.
How much does Figo Pet Insurance cost?
Figo offers three plans: Essential, Preferred and Ultimate. All plans cover the same items but have different annual benefit amounts.
You can get a free monthly premium quote online. To give you an idea of what you can expect to pay, we got quotes for two different dogs in Tulsa, Oklahoma: a 3-year-old male golden retriever and a 12-year-old female Maltese.
For both quotes, we went with the company’s preselected options for annual deductible and reimbursement percentages.
For the golden retriever, the company suggested an 80% reimbursement and $250 deductible.
|Annual benefit||Monthly cost|
The Veterinary Exam Fees would cost an addtional $6.46 a month, and the Extra Care Pack costs an additional $6.62 a month. The Wellness Basic option would cost an additional $9.50 a month, while the Wellness Plus option is an additional $16.50 each month.
For the Maltese, the company preselected a 70% reimbursement rate and $750 deductible.
|Annual benefit||Monthly cost|
Adding the Veterinary Exam Fees option would cost another $8.46 a month, and the Extra Care Pack would cost an extra $6.62 a month. The Wellness add-on would cost $9.50 a month, and Wellness Plus would cost $16.50 a month.
Your monthly cost increases or decreases based on the reimbursement percentage and deductible you select. To lower your monthly premium, choose a lower reimbursement level or a higher annual deductible.

My Lhaso Apso is 11 and has had some problems in the past but I thought I would give it a try. After only having the insurance for 10 days my dog began bumping into furniture so I knew she had to have something wrong with her eyes. Called a specialist to have her checked out and she had two detached retinas which caused sudden blindness. This was on the 11th day. Sent in claim and it went in review. Several blood tests were ordered and I had those done on the 14th day. Both claims denied because there was a 14 day waiting period. Ok makes sense, no problem!
Took her back for follow up on the 25th. Sent in that claim. Now it was denied because now it is considered preexisting. I just thought that they would not pay anything during the first 14 days. Didn’t realize they would now say Pre-existing. Make sure you read your policy carefully! My fault I guess but no way was I going to wait 4 more days to have my dog examined. Now anything she has because of bloodwork can be determined Pre-existing although she has not been diagnosed with anything yet but detached retinas.
Thank you, you have successfully subscribed to our newsletter! Enjoy reading our tips and recommendations.
The claims department at Figo make every excuse to deny your claims. They will drag your claim out over the course of several months, force you to appeal, and then deny it. I highly recommend going with Nationwide pet coverage over Figo. We had a much better experience with them with one of our now deceased pets. Nationwide paid out claims promptly and without the painful experience that we have experienced with Figo.
Figo has turned down every claim I've submitted due to "pre-existing conditions" despite my cat not having the pre-existing condition. They will scour the medical record for anything even remotely related to the claim in the past and declare it a "pre-existing condition". They lied and changed their story multiple times as to why the claim was denied. They will make your life miserable in the hopes you just give up on the claim. Garbage, scam of a company. Don't waste your money.
Hi Jesse, we are so sorry to hear about this. We pride ourselves on being able to assist our pet parents, so we’d love to speak further and get more information. Please reach out to our customer service team via email or phone so that we can better assist you.
This is the fourth pet insurance I have dealt with. Figo is by far the best out there. You might pay a little higher premium, but when you file a claim, they pay lighting fast without any hassles. They are fair and always helpful. The Figo app makes things so easy. A big high five for Figo. Thank you to Figo!! Without you my sweet Lexie could not the care she needs. I am so grateful for/to Figo.
Figo Pet Insurance has so many exclusions you will be lucky to get any of your claims covered. I purchased pet insurance for accidents, injuries and unexpected illnesses. I submitted $4,500 in claims and received ZERO in reimbursement. Have tried to contact for clarification but have not been able to get anyone on the phone. I spent hours downloading and collecting all the information they requested. There are better companies out there. Do your research and don't waste your money.
We enrolled our two miniature long haired dachshunds with FIGO health coverage 2 months ago. We were very please with the ease associated with the enrollment process. The web site and app is fantastic. Unfortunately after several weeks, one of our dogs needed care and treatment for a sore back. We filed the claim with all the paperwork from the Vet. I would have expected a quicker decision. We'll wait and see. Claims processing is an important feature of the coverage and one of the reasons we switched from Trupanion to FIGO.
Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback, and welcome to the Figo Family! We are glad to hear that it was easy to enroll and that the app and website are also easy to use. Your first claim typically takes the longest as we get a prior history written up for your pet and review their medical history in full. This helps us speed up the claims process for any future claims submitted. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out to us at 844-738-3446!

I have not had to file any claims yet so I can’t speak on that. I had a bumpy start with Figo but we got it sorted out and all has been good. I do really like their app, it has so great information and it’s a great place to keep all of my dogs' medical records and to even find and connect with other dog owners in my area. Hopefully I won’t need to come any claims but I have peace of mind that my dogs is protected.
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We are glad to see that all has been good so far and that the app has been useful for you! We also hope that you don't need to file any claims any time soon, but maybe Asher can make some new friends through the Pet Cloud!

Great communication at all times. A little pricey but has been worth it so far. We have made our deductible 2 years in row….So we have gotten some money back. Did compare prices before we bought. New policy members get a discount at Costco…
