Pet insurance details

Henry Ford College is pleased to announce that a new voluntary benefit will be available to you starting January 1: pet Insurance with Nationwide. Whether they have two legs or four, every family member deserves quality health care. Nationwide pet insurance plans give you the freedom to use any veterinarian, anywhere, including specialists and emergency providers.

You will pay for coverage through an after-tax payroll deduction. Pricing varies depending on the type of pet and where you live. You will be able to get a quote and enroll through a custom portal that will be posted in the BenXpress enrollment system. See your 2022 Benefit Guide and open enrollment presentation for more information.

  • Illnesses
  • Hereditary and congenital conditions
  • Cancer
  • Dental diseases
  • Behavioral treatments
  • Rx therapeutic diets and supplements

Your pet won’t be dropped from coverage, regardless of age or number of claims filed. Pre-existing conditions are not covered. Any illness or injury your pet had prior to the start of the policy will be considered pre-existing.
