Overall Rating: 8 / 10 (Very good)

Figo offers extremely generous coverage for the price. Its standard plan covers items that most high-level plans won't, unless they are made available as costly add ons. Figo is the only company we are aware of that has an 100% reimbursement option. Though, this will mean the highest premium. The company offers unlimited coverage as an option and will waive payments if the animal is receiving life-saving care. However, Figo is relatively new and does not possess the experience or time in business as some of our other featured companies.

Coverage - 9 / 10

Figo offers three plan levels and all of them provide substantial coverage for the price compared to most other companies. Figo's least expensive plan covers normal accidents and illnesses, but also things like prescriptions, hip dysplasia, exam fees, alternative treatments, prosthetics, mobility devices, and treatment for behavioral problems. The other two plans only go up from there, covering lost pet advertising and reward, and vacation cancellation. Figo also no exclusions for hereditary or congenital conditions, or pre-existing conditions if they have been cured for 12 months. Figo is the only company we are aware of that will waive copays and deductibles for life saving care.

Reimbursement & Maximum Benefit Limits

Reimbursement - 8.5 / 10

Figo offers reimbursement levels of 70%, 80%, 90% and 100%. They are the only pet insurance company we are aware of that reimburses at 100%. They also pay out on the actual vet bill.

Benefit Limits - 8 / 10

Unlike some of our other top companies, Figo does not offer unlimited coverage as a default. You can choose between $10,000, $14,000 and unlimited. For complete peace of mind you may have to go with the high end plan to get the unlimited coverage, as advanced techniques and specialized treatments are costing more than ever before. Figo does not operate on a benefit schedule.

Claims and Service - 8.5 / 10

Figo's claims process is completely paperless and features fast and easy mobile claims with an average approval time of 10 days. You can either take a picture of the bill with your phone and submit it via the cloud, or uploaded it to your email client and send it that way. Turnaround times are faster than most if you select direct deposit. The company is reachable via text, chat, phone, email, Twitter, or Facebook Messenger. Figo even sends get well cards to sick pets or care packages to those who have passed away.

Deductibles - 9 / 10

Like all the best options, Figo allows you to customize your deductible with four choices between $50-$500. However, the company will waive the deductible if your pet is receiving life saving care. This is an annual deductible not per condition.

Pet Insurance should be easy, convenient, and affordable. THis is what Figo all had. Figo has a phone app called pet cloud which is very easy to use. I filed my first claim, and it was so easy. Just took picture of my paid invoice to vet, answered a few questions, and press submit. Figo did the rest. My vet was then required to send past 2 years health record, and most recent exam record. I just a waited a week, and claim was processed.

I am a prospective policyholder and want to advise that the company rep (Alex), who i was able to contact for information about your product, was very professional, courteous and answered all my questions about your plans, prices and financial standing, in a very thorough and helpful way. I had spent a great deal of time in trying to reach the best possible decision regarding pet insurance, and I feel that I now know which company is the best choice to protect my pet. If Alex is any indication or representation of FIGO, in general, then the choice is easy. Thanks for having Alex on your team.

I signed up my new dog with Figo simply because I felt it was the best in terms of overall coverage and package. The pet cloud app is simple to use and very convenient. I filed my first claim, and it only took a weeks to process. Other pet insurance plans may be around longer but Figo has more to offer. I recommend FIgo to all pet parents considering pet insurance.

I chose Figo because of its simplicity. Sign up took a few minutes. I chose essential plan 10k,200 deductible , 100 percent coverage. The montly premium was one of the most affordable compared to the other pet insurance companies. Plus, Figo coverage was the most generous. I have not yet filed a claim but so far customer service was very helpful. I f I had a question, I would text them, and I would get a replay back within a few mintues. I now have peace of mind. Thanks Figo.!!!

I spent the whole entire day trying to find good pet insurance for my cat!! And when I finally choose FIGO, it turned out to be a big waste of time!! Everytime I pressed the purchase button, it kept asking me for my password!! I put that in 85 times already & even kept changing my password!! But it wouldn't go through!! And the app doesn't even recognize my account, & so I had to uninstall it!! Thanks for nothing Figo!!😠

I compared policies, and by far this company offers the best coverage. I went with $200 annual deductible, and 90% reimbursement plan for my two kittens. I now have the peace of mind that if something happens I am covered. Most comprehensive plan I could find.

We just insured our German Shorthaired Pointer, Prince. Have not had any claims yet but we do like the Pet Cloud where you can send Figo your pet's medical records very easy. Also, chose Figo because they had 100% reimbursement coverage that the other companies did not offer. Time will tell if we made a good choice and we will keep you updated. So far so good!!!

My vet recommened me 2 pet insurance companies. One is an established pet insurance company but more expensive. The other was Figo, the newer company, but more affordable and more up to date with coverage, claims processing, and customer service, I chose Figo. Simplicity is bliss. The ease of doing business with Figo was the best part. I recommend Figo to everyone

Figo is the really the best pet insurance out there. Our last dog we had a different pet insurance that was complicated, paperwork to fill out, and poor follow up. Figo is exactly the opposite. The plan coverage is beyond everyone else, and customer service dept is excellent. My two dogs are on Figo, and the claims processing was so easy. Thanks Figo


I signed up 2 of my pets within the past year. What I like about Figo is that among the pet insurance companies I have checked, Figo offers the most generous coverage,and one of the most affordable. My first pet had an ear infection. cliam was processed in 3 days. The other pet had swallowed a toy. The claim was processed in 3 days also. Best of all , i filled out no paperwork and just went on my figo pet cloud app, and answered a few questions, took picture of invoice, and press submitt. I didnt do much thereafter as the claims dept from Figo contacted Figo and got all support documents they needed. So simple. I recommend FIgo to all my friends and family. Figo is Simple. That...
