About Embrace Pet Insurance
Embrace Pet Insurance is a top-rated pet health insurance provider for dogs and cats in the United States. Embrace offers one simple yet comprehensive accident and illness insurance plan that is underwritten by American Modern Insurance Group, Inc. In addition to insurance, Embrace offers Wellness Rewards, an optional preventative care product that is unique to the industry.

Embrace is a proud member of the North American Pet Health Insurance Association (NAPHIA) and continues to innovate and improve the pet insurance experience for pet parents across the country.
In 2003, a concept for a pet insurance company won the 2003 Wharton Business Plan Competition. That concept later blossomed into Embrace Pet Insurance and the company has only grown since then.
Embrace strives to offer their customers the best coverage to help them get the best care for their best friends when unexpected accidents and illnesses happen without breaking the bank. Policies are fully customizable to fit any budget, and coverage is comprehensive so there are no gaps. They’re the only company to offer a diminishing deductible feature, the Healthy Pet Deductible, to give back to those who go years without filing claims.
Giving back is an important part of Embrace’s culture, it’s even one of the company’s core values. For every policy sold, Embrace donates $2 to a pet-related charity. They also match employee donations 100% regardless of them being to a pet-related charity or not.
