Pet Insurance


As a full-time faculty, staff, or LIUNA bargaining unit member, you can participate in a voluntary benefits program to purchase Pet Insurance. You can enroll in the program at any time.

About the Program

Nationwide pet insurance helps you cover veterinary expenses so you can provide your pets with the best care possible without worrying about the cost. Simply pay for coverage through a convenient after-tax payroll deduction.

My Pet Protection reimburses you for eligible vet bills and includes benefits for emergency boarding and lost-pet advertising. You can choose 50% or 70% reimbursement for the level of coverage that fits your needs, getting cash back for accidents, illnesses, hereditary conditions, behavioral treatments, and more.

With Nationwide, you have the freedom to use your choice of veterinarian, including specialists and emergency providers. In addition, the company’s 24/7 vethelpline is included as a service to all pet insurance members.
