Introducing Walmart’s pet insurance
Pet insurance from Nationwide is now available via Walmart.com, now that the insurer expanded its partnership with the retail giant – “visitors to the Pet Care section of Walmart.com may explore Nationwide’s pet protection products, purchase a policy and learn about healthy pet ownership through curated content.”
This offering builds upon an existing collaboration between Nationwide , the largest pet insurer in the US, and Walmart , the largest retailer in the US, that began with the launch of Nationwide Pet Rx Express in January 2021. This program gives Nationwide pet insurance members preferred pricing on pet prescriptions and an expedited claims filing experience via 4,700 Walmart pharmacies and 566 Sam’s Club pharmacies.
“The expansion of our collaboration with Walmart gives us another way to meet millions of pet families where they are – shopping on Walmart.com. Promoting Nationwide’s pet protection solutions within Walmart’s online pet care ecosystem offers a seamless experience for pet parents to learn more about managing costs associated with healthy pet ownership.” – Nationwide pet insurance President and Chief Pet Officer Heidi Sirota.
Bottom Line: This isn’t an exclusive collaboration.
