Three other reasons to consider Healthy Paws over Nationwide: Three other reasons to consider Healthy Paws over Nationwide:

1. While there is no annual limit for Nationwide's most expensive plan, Whole Pet with Wellness, the Major Medical Plan does have annual claim payout limits or per incident payout allowances.

2. Their Major Medical Plan relies on a benefit schedule (instead of reimbursing based on the actual vet bill) and reimbursement is capped at a set amount for each condition.

3. Hereditary and congenital conditions are covered under Nationwide's most expensive plan, but other plans do not cover many of these conditions. Some hereditary conditions and cruciate ligament injuries are only covered after a 1-year waiting period.

1Healthy Paws includes coverage for hip dysplasia when you enroll your pet before the age of six. It is excluded from coverage if you enroll your pet when they are 6 and older. There is a twelve-month waiting period before coverage takes effect in all states except MD and NH. If signs or symptoms of hip dysplasia are noted by your veterinarian before your enrollment or during the twelve-month waiting period, hip dysplasia will be considered pre-existing and will not be covered.
