Nationwide has expanded its partnership with Walmart to permit policyholders to fill their pet prescriptions at 566 Sam’s Club pharmacies.
The move came three months after the pet health insurer introduced the Pet Rx Express program at 4,700 Walmart stores.
“We’re working to give every pet owner access to affordable treatment on their schedule,” said Heidi Sirota, Nationwide’s chief pet officer. “The expansion of Nationwide Pet Rx Express into Sam’s Club pharmacies gives families even more options for keeping their pets healthy.”
Nationwide covers more than 1 million pets, making it the largest pet health insurer in the United States.
Sam’s Club will admit non-member pet owners looking to fill a veterinarian’s prescription.
Nationwide policyholders “will have access to the retailer’s most commonly prescribed pet-specific medications for chronic disease and flea, tick and heartworm prevention,” the company stated.
Nationwide Pet Rx Express offers preferred pricing on prescriptions and claims processing at the pharmacy counter.
