Pets are family, too. Stanford now offers benefits-eligible employees a benefit to help cover injuries, illness, and wellness care for dogs, cats, birds and exotic pets.
Stanford has teamed up with Nationwide Insurance to offer benefits-eligible employees coverage for their dogs, cats, birds and exotic pets. Under Nationwide’s plans, you can choose from two available plans; My Pet Protection and My Pet Protection with Wellness. Additionally, you can continue to see your family vet because this insurance is accepted by veterinarians worldwide.
Cardinal at Work pet parents who are active, benefits-eligible employees now have three Nationwide Insurance plans to choose from. Plan prices for Stanford employees include a 5% discount; if you have multiple pets, you may qualify for discounts of up to 15%. All plans include a 10-day, 100% money-back guarantee from Nationwide. Premiums are based on age of pet, species, size (as an adult) and state of residence; unfortunately, you cannot insure a pet with a pre-existing condition.
