What’s Required for My First Claim?

What’s required?

What is it?

Itemized Invoice

An invoice/receipt typically given after you pay that includes the total amount for your pet’s visit, discounts, taxes, other pets, etc.

Note: Should include all pages of the invoice

Diagnosis or Reason for Visit

The reason your pet was seen by the vet (i.e. vomiting, diarrhea, scratching ear, allergies, limping, etc.)

Medical Records

Your pet’s complete medical history.

Unless a medical history review was done previously, your first accident or illness claim can take longer to process because our team is going through your pet’s records for the first time.

Note: If you submit claims outside of MyEmbrace online or in the Embrace Pet Insurance app, make sure to include the claim form(s) and all pages of the complete invoice.
