Nationwide unveils new avian and exotic pet insurance plan

Nationwide, “the first and largest provider of pet health insurance in the US,” is targeting the 15% of US pet owners who have a bird or exotic animal as a pet, such as a rabbit, reptile or amphibian, with a new avian and exotic pet health insurance plan designed specifically for the veterinary care of these pets.

Nationwide’s avian and exotic pet insurance coverage reimburses up to 90% of eligible veterinary expenses. These expenses are inclusive of the most common medical conditions for these species as well as an option for reimbursement for preventive care. Currently, customers interested in this coverage can only receive quotes via phone.

“Many households include parrots, frogs, even potbellied pigs as family members. And like dogs, cats and ourselves, they need care, too. So Nationwide has designed a comprehensive health plan for the unique needs of these pets, the only avian and exotic plan available in the U.S.” – Nationwide’s Chief Pet Officer Heidi Sirota. 

Bottom Line: With Nationwide, no pet is left behind.
