Figo: The New Wave of Pet Insurance

At the BlogPaws Conference, I had the opportunity to be introduced to Figo Pet Insurance.

Figo Pet Insurance is definitely the new wave of pet insurance.

Specifically, they have considered opportunities presented by new technology, and the lifestyle of the busy pet parent (like myself).

“Insurance when you need it and technology along the way”.

Why is pet insurance important?

Spending on veterinary care is increasing in the United States. As veterinary medicine continues to progress, better (and more expensive) health care is available for our pets.

If you don’t want to ask yourself if you can afford the necessary procedures and treatments for your pet’s health, than pet insurance is right for you.

Pet insurance has improved significantly in the last 15 years to provide the right coverage for pet parents where it is needed. Here is a summary of what Figo does, and does not, cover:

The Pet Cloud

Figo Pet Insurance not only provides pet parents with pet insurance, they also provide new solutions to better streamline pet medical records.

The Pet Cloud introduces a new catch-all solution for your pet’s medical records and other important information.

How does it work?

Well, you can upload files to the Pet Cloud from any device, or have files sent to your very own Pet Cloud email inbox.

That’s right! If you give your Pet Cloud email to your veterinarian, all of your receipts and reminders can be sent and saved straight to your pet cloud. This makes it seamless to check your pet’s vaccine reminders and look back at receipts.

Additionally, since the Pet Cloud syncs with your mobile devices, you can be reminded when your pet is due for vaccinations via email, text message, or push notification.

Have questions about your pet’s vaccines? Well, your Pet Cloud can provide you with a breakdown of the purpose of the vaccine and why it is necessary.

Other Pet Cloud Capabilities

1. You can use the “Near Me” feature to locate pet professionals and pet friendly places in your area!

2. Real time pet GPS tracking!

3. Online pet profiles associated with your Figo Pet Tag which serves as a pet loss prevention tool.

4. If you are insured via Figo Pet Insurance, you can submit claims online, or via your mobile device!

5. Additionally, you can text message Figo regarding claims and other helpful information!

New Technologies

Figo is teaming up with Gibi Technologies to provide you with real time tracking of your pet’s movement. Best of all, you can get real time alerts if your pet is outside of the safe zone!

Are you a veterinarian or veterinary technician?

Figo Pet Insurance is working hard to prevent your office from dealing with more paperwork.

They provide you with:

Personalized Veterinary Portals

Electronic Claims Payment

and Veterinary Staff Discounts

Figo Pet Insurance’s online platform, app and technology provide pet parents with a comprehensive pet health solution! I can’t wait to see what they come up with next!

    Our pets been very valuable to us since the day we adapt them. Well while we humans have this life insurance, our pets too can have this. Its a bit unusual for others, but we have to accept that our pet need it.
