Pet insurance

We know pets are part of the family, so Gen has partnered with Nationwide to offer a group discount for pet insurance. You can purchase comprehensive, affordable coverage for all your pets, in the event they get ill or injured.


All active U.S. team members who work at least 20 hours per week are eligible to enroll. Plus, your eligible family members can take advantage of the savings as long as the coverage and payment arrangements are made in your name.

Plan highlights

Nationwide pet insurance policies cover the diagnosis and treatment of medical conditions related to accidental injuries, emergencies, poisonings, and illnesses.

  • You can use any vet you want—no network or preapprovals required.
  • You choose your level of coverage: 50% or 70% reimbursement.
  • Covered services include:
    • Office visits
    • X-rays, diagnostic tests, and lab fees
    • Treatment
    • Hospitalization
    • Surgery
    • Prescriptions
  • Optional wellness coverage is available, covering routine care, vaccinations, annual physical exams, heartworm protection, spay/neuter, teeth cleaning, flea control, and more.
  • Your coverage is portable. If you leave Gen for any reason, you can continue your coverage without interruption, though the amount of your premium will increase.
