Pet Insurance

Whitfield County Schools offers a pet insurance benefit through Nationwide. Employees enroll in pet insurance directly through Nationwide, but the premiums are conveniently deducted through payroll.  My Pet Protection plan through Nationwide, offers you unmatched flexibility and peace of mind for your furry, feathered, or scaled companions.

With My Pet Protection, you have the freedom to use any veterinarian anywhere, at any time, with no need for pre-approvals or restrictive networks. Plans are not limited to dogs and cats; they extend to birds and exotic pets as well. The benefit has a low $250 annual deductible and a generous $7,500 annual maximum benefit, which renews in full each year.  Prescription medications for your pets are covered, ensuring they receive the necessary treatments without financial worry.
