Spot Plans vs. Figo Plans: Pet Insurance Comparison

We know that your pet is a member of your family — full stop. The humans in your family have insurance coverage, but what about your pets? Pet insurance is often viewed as a complicated and confusing topic. We’re here to change that.

At Spot, we think we have incredible service and product offerings. However, we want you to decide for yourself. We are going to do an analysis on some top pet insurance providers, including ourselves. Today we’re going to go over Figo vs. Spot.

We’re stacking the plans we offer up against some top competitors’ plans. Take a look below and see how Spot plans differ from Figo plans. 

See How Spot Plans Stack Up

Some people say comparison is the thief of joy. At Spot, we’re happy to compare ourselves to others. We’re confident in the products we offer. 

Spot provides your pet with extensive plan options. 

Here, we take a look at a few key differentiators between pet insurance plans offered by Spot and Figo:

  • As a policyholder of a plan from Figo, you need to pay an additional fee to get coverage for exam fees for eligible conditions.  This is not the case with Spot plans. 
  • Figo plans do not cover microchipping. 
  • Figo has a separate cap on how much they will reimburse for behavioral problems. If eligible treatment for your pet’s behavioral problem costs more than this cap, you’ll have to pay for those yourself. 

The breakdown below gives a look at some of the core features for each providers’ plans. 

Some Key Differences

1. Spot plan Coverage includes Exam Fees for covered conditions. Figo plans requires an additional cost to cover Exam Fees for covered conditions.

With Spot plans, your Accident-Only or Accident & Illness plan will cover exam fees for covered conditions. If your pet is undergoing cancer treatment, treatment for a covered condition, the exams are eligible for reimbursement if they are not otherwise excluded. 

2. We know how stressful exams and hospitalization for accidents and illnesses can be. We want to help make it easy for loving pet parents getting their animals the care they deserve. 

In comparison, Figo plans coverage does not extend to exam fees for covered conditions unless policyholders add Veterinary Exam Fees coverage to their plan , which costs extra.

3. All Spot plans cover microchipping. Figo plans do not.

Microchip implantation is quick, simple and can help pet parents reunite with lost pets. All Spot policies cover microchip implantation; Figo policies do not. 

At Spot, we want to help provide you with the resources you need to be the best pet parent you can be — and help ensure your best chances of reuniting with your furry friend if they get lost. 

4. Spot plans do not have a separate annual limit for behavioral problems. Figo plans have a separate annual limit for behavioral problem. 

Spot plans cover behavioral problems, and they don’t have a separate annual limit specific to behavioral problems.

Figo plans also cover behavioral problems.  However, they have a separate annual limit of $500-$1000 for behavioral problem coverage.
