Nationwide offers several plans to protect your pet(s):
|My Pet Protection (Cats $23.74/ Dogs $39.57 per month)|
|My Pet Protection with Wellness (Cats $39.69/ Dogs $66.15 per month)|
These plans have a $250 annual deductible, a $7,500 maximum annual benefit, and 90% back on vet bills (some exclusions may apply - certain coverages may be subject to pre-existing exclusion).
A great feature of this new benefit is that you can enroll anytime and your coverage will be effective the day your application is approved by Nationwide. That means you can enroll now or later on. You'll pay your premiums directly to Nationwide.
