Nationwide® partners with Walmart on first-of-its kind pet prescription program

Nationwide Pet Rx Express offers pet insurance members savings, added convenience with streamlined claims process at Walmart pharmacies

Nationwide and Walmart, the nation’s largest pet insurer and the nation’s largest retailer, are joining forces to help families with pets save time and money when filling their pet prescription medications at any of Walmart’s 4,700 pharmacies across the country.

Nationwide Pet Rx ExpressSM gives Nationwide’s pet insurance members access to affordable pet prescription medicines and introduces a new, expedited, in-store claims experience. Members can log into my.petinsurance.com to sign up for the program and access their digital ID card to present at the Walmart pharmacy. Preferred pricing and the opportunity to have claims for covered drugs processed at the counter of a major retail pharmacy is a first for the pet health insurance industry.

Through this partnership, Nationwide pet insurance members will have access to Walmart’s most commonly prescribed pet-specific medications for chronic disease and flea, tick and heartworm prevention.

“Families deserve the same convenience when tending to their pets’ health as they do their own. Offering on-the-spot claims filing and preferred pricing at a major retail location helps our members save time and money,” said Nationwide Chief Pet Officer Heidi Sirota. “We’re working to make it possible for every American to bring a pet into their family and this first-of-its-kind partnership with the country’s leading pet retailer brings us closer to that goal.”

“Whether our customers are buying prescription pet medicine or an insurance policy, we want to provide an effortless experience and unmatched value,” said Nationwide Chief Strategy and Corporate Development Officer Mike Mahaffey. “Partnering with Walmart to both lower costs and streamline the claims process at the pharmacy counter is a terrific example of innovating to meet our members’ needs, and we’re excited about providing them this convenient, new option when managing their pets’ care.”

“Affordable health & wellness offerings for families is important for the whole family, including family pets,” said Luke Kleyn, Vice President, Health & Wellness, Walmart. “We are proud to partner with Nationwide to further support our commitment of helping people save money and live better, and healthier, in a way that is convenient and accessible.”

Whether picking up pet supplies, filling a prescription with Nationwide, or having pet food delivered with their weekly groceries while arranging a quick dog walk, Walmart is the one-stop pet destination customers can trust for simple, everyday pet needs.
