What You Need to Know

Your dog or cat is part of the family, and when he or she needs medical care, the last thing you want to worry about is how you are going to pay for it. Pet insurance can help you manage the high costs associated with caring for your pet. Also, the coverage is portable, which means if you leave the Company, the coverage may be continued.

Understanding Pet Insurance

Pet insurance, insured by Nationwide, is a voluntary benefit that offers financial protection when your pet needs veterinary care.


You can enroll in voluntary pet insurance at any time online through Nationwide's enrollment website or by calling Nationwide.

Using your benefit

It can take up to two months for coverage to begin. Please note if your pet has a pre-existing condition, related services may not be covered.

After your pet receives care, simply submit a claim through Nationwide Pet Account Access. Nationwide will then make covered payments directly to you.

Paying for coverage

You receive preferred pricing on your pet insurance coverage which can be paid by convenient paycheck deductions. To request a quote, visit Nationwide's enrollment website. You’ll need to enter the type of pet (e.g., dog or cat) and your zip code to find the plans available to you and the costs per paycheck.

Each pet is covered individually, so you will need to add all pets you want to cover when you are enrolling in coverage. You’ll receive deeper discounts on additional pets.

Once you are enrolled, you can review your coverage at any time through Nationwide Pet Account Access. If you are logging in for the first time, you will need to create an account.

Covered services

Coverage is available for your cat or dog for diagnostic tests, prescriptions, office visits, X-rays, hospitalization, lab fees, surgeries, and more. Plus, you can visit any licensed veterinarian you want, so you don’t have to change vets.
