Crop-Hail Insurance

Crop-hail insurance is different than MPCI because it is not part of the federal crop insurance program. Instead, private crop insurance companies sell these policies, and the premiums are not subsidized. Unlike MPCI, farmers may purchase a crop-hail policy at any time during the growing season. See the table below for hail policy premium deadlines by insurance company.
