Founded in 2012, Figo is one of the industry’s newest pet insurers, and has a very tech-focused approach that fits with its beginnings at the Chicago technology facility 1871.
Still based in the Windy City, the company is now a national provider that uses a cloud-based platform to let policyholders easily manage all medical records and relevant information.
Figo also boasts quite generous coverage, optional unlimited benefits and full reimbursement, and three consecutive “Best Pet Insurance” awards from Reviews.com.
Figo Pet Insurance Policies
Although Figo does not insure birds or exotic animals as some other pet insurance providers do, the company does distinguish itself with notably comprehensive coverage for dogs and cats, offering a standard plan that covers items many competitors’ high-level plans don’t.
Figo offers optional unlimited coverage, that will waive payments if the animal is receiving life-saving care, and is perhaps the only company to offer a 100 percent reimbursement option, though this is of course tied to the highest premium.
Figo’s three flexible plans allow policyholders to customize the reimbursement percentage and annual deductible.
Industry-exclusive Healthy Pet Deductible also reduces your annual deductible $50 each year that you don’t receive a claim payment, and is included at no additional cost on every pet insurance policy.
And though no pet insurance company covers pre-existing conditions, Figo is different. They will determine whether or not the pre-existing condition is curable, and will cover the curable conditions after 12 months of being symptom and treatment free.
Essential Pet Insurance
The most affordable and rudimentary plan still covers quite a bit, including:
- Prescription Medications
- Cancer Treatments
- Chronic Conditions
- Diagnostic Testing
- Hip Dysplasia
- Prosthetics…and more
The Essential plan also comes with an annual payout limit of $10,000.
Preferred Pet Insurance
The Preferred plan builds on the Essential plan by also covering:
- Emergency Boarding Fees
- Lost Pet Advertising and Reward
- Lost Pet due to Theft or Straying
The most popular Figo option, this plan also has a higher annual payout of $14,000.
Ultimate Pet Insurance
The most comprehensive coverage has everything offered by the Essential plan, as well as:
- Coverage for Emergency Vacation Cancellation
- Death From Covered Illness or Injury
The Ultimate plan also has unlimited payouts.
Figo Pet Insurance offers an almost unheard of option of 100% reimbursement. They also offer more flexibility with pre existing conditions.

Figo Pet Insurance Quotes and Application Process
For a free online quote for a dog or cat, potential policyholders should go to Figo’s website and enter some information regarding their pet’s name, species, sex, age, and breed. You’ll also be asked to include your zip code and email address, as well as any promo code.
After submitting that info, you will be taken to a page where you can see monthly premium quotes for three different plans: essential, preferred, and ultimate.
At this stage, you can also customize the following:
- Reimbursement Amount: 70%, 80%, 90%, or an almost unheard of 100%
- Deductible: $750, $500, $250, or $100
You also have the option of adding veterinary exam fees to your policy. In addition to choosing your pet insurance policy type, you will also be prompted at this stage of the application to answer whether you are an active or retired military member and whether your pet is spayed or neutered, has had an exam in the last 12 months, or is a service animal.
Figo Pet Insurance Discount
Insurance companies are fond of sweetening the pot with various discounts. That’s especially true of Insurers that provide more than one type of insurance, and will typically offer bundling discounts to customers who bundle two or more types of coverage, such as home and auto.
Figo only sells pet insurance, so there’s no opportunity to combine your pet’s policy with your car or property. However, the company does offer savings to policyholders who enroll multiple pets, along with a few other discounts.
Though available pet insurance discounts can vary by state and are subject to a maximum percent discount, according to Figo’s website, the following discounts are generally available:
- Animal Shelter/Humane Society
- Corporate Group Benefit Plan
- Internet Partner
- Medical Services Pet
- Multiple Pet
- Strategic Partner
- Veterans & Serving Military
- Veterinary Clinic Staff & Students
- Annual (Full) Premium Payment
