Nationwide has made the claim process so easy! The first time we needed to submit a claim I was quite concerned about the process however it really ended up being a matter of uploading bills and hitting the submit button! Nationwide does the rest....

Great insurance company. Unfortunately my Ali was attacked by an Aussie Shepherd 2 years ago and there are still ill effects. However, due to great medical care and help with insurance I feel she received the best of everything.
