Nationwide Home Insurance

Nationwide home insurance provides coverage for standard and peril for your home and personal property. Aside from offering basic coverage, homeowners could also purchase additional coverage for natural disasters (landslides and floods). The company’s biggest selling point is the huge discounts they offer for home insurance bargain hunters.

Financial Rating

Nationwide home insurance suffers from poor financial ratings. Their financial portfolio is just not as robust as those seen in their competitors. 


Bottom Line

Nationwide Home Insurance offers good discounts on their packages which is at par or even better than their major competitors. But poor customer feedback and reviews coupled with poor financial ratings make it a little bit less attractive to other major home insurance players. Nationwide home insurance is a great choice for homeowners searching for the best discounts available. But it suffers from poor financial ratings which can make some homeowners nervous. Nationwide does have all the basic areas covered and is certainly worth a second look when shopping for home insurance.

Nationwide took over VPI with whom I had an existing policy. Nationwide states it covers 90% of the treatment/procedure expenses. There should be a asterisk added to that statement. There is a $50 deductible for each "incident". Prescription cost associated with the treatment of the "incident" is capped at approximately $280 per year. As one submits claims for the same prescription, the amount of reimbursement decreases as the "cost cap" comes closer to being reached. The final 90-day prescription cost of $144 for the same "incident" for the year I submitted, I received a reimbursement of 10 cents. I recommend looking closely at Nationwide's policies for coverage of your pet.
