Nationwide Expands Pet Prescription Program to Sam’s Club Pharmacies

Nationwide Pet Rx Express now available at more than 5,200 locations.




(PRESS RELEASE) BREA, CA – Nationwide, the largest pet health insurer in the U.S. with more than one million pets protected, is collaborating with Sam’s Club, a division of Walmart Inc., to offer Nationwide Pet Rx ExpressSM at its 566 in-club pharmacies. The program expansion into Sam’s Club locations gives Nationwide pet insurance members access to a total of 5,266 retail pharmacy locations to fill pet prescriptions and enjoy cost-saving and convenience.

“We’re working to give every pet owner access to affordable treatment on their schedule. The expansion of Nationwide Pet Rx Express into Sam’s Club pharmacies gives families even more options for keeping their pets healthy,” said Nationwide Chief Pet Officer Heidi Sirota.

Nationwide Pet Rx Express gives Nationwide’s pet insurance members affordable pet prescription medicines and an expedited, in-club claims experience. 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.

Patients do not need to be a member of Sam’s Club to fill prescriptions at the pharmacy, which include Nationwide pet insurance members. Through this collaboration, members will have access to the retailer’s most commonly prescribed pet-specific medications for chronic disease and flea, tick and heartworm prevention.
