Insurance carrier Nationwide has launched its pet insurance offering through Walmart Insurance Services on Walmart.com.
Nationwide, a Fortune 100 company based in Columbus, Ohio, considers itself one of the largest and strongest diversified insurance and financial services organisations in the US.
The collaboration with Walmart will see pet parents who shop online for their everyday pet (and people) needs at Walmart.com also now able to find Nationwide pet health insurance offerings on the retailer’s site.
According to Nationwide, this offering builds upon the existing collaboration between the two companies that began with the launch of Nationwide Pet Rx ExpressSM at 4,700 Walmart pharmacies in January 2021.
The programme gives Nationwide pet insurance members preferred pricing on pet prescriptions and an expedited claims filing experience was expanded in May 2021 to include 566 pharmacies at Sam’s Club, a division of Walmart Inc.
Heidi Sirota, Nationwide pet insurance president and chief pet officer said, “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.”
Earlier this year, Nationwide teamed up with consumer InsurTech solution Waffle to offer instant online auto and home coverage.
This partnership will make Nationwide the preferred auto and homeowner insurance carrier for Waffle and will include the direct integration of Nationwide’s auto & home products onto the Waffle platform. Waffle has also been appointed by Nationwide to sell all of its Personal P&C products.
