Find the solution in ProAg’s Increased Coverage Election* (ICE) named peril policy

The ICE policy supplements the coverage provided by the Multiple Peril Crop Insurance (MPCI) policies. By purchasing the ICE policy, an insured can

  • Supplement their protection through either increasing the price election selected on an applicable underlying Multiple Peril Crop Insurance (MPCI) or
  • Supplement the MPCI coverage with additional coverage against yield loss and/or revenue loss within a selected coverage band.

Key ICE Policy Highlights

  • The ICE policy is an annual policy.
  • A fully executed application must be submitted by the underlying MPCI policies sales closing date.
  • The annual premium is due October 1st.
  • The available unit structure for the ICE Policy will be basic, optional or enterprise as defined by the MPCI Common Crop Insurance policy provisions.
    • The unit structure for ICE does not have to match the unit structure of the underlying MPCI policy, however the unit structure choice still needs to be selected at the time of application with the disclaimer included.
    • ICE unit structure will not follow the Multi County Enterprise Units (MCEU) or Enterprise Practice (EP) for the underlying MPCI policy.
  • ICE coverage is not available with Catastrophic Risk Protection (CAT) coverage or Area Risk Protection Insurance (ARPI) plans.
  • The per-acre yield will be the same as the “approved yield” calculated with your underlying policy or selected optional unit structure (including the Trend Adjusted Yield, where applicable). Any reduction in coverage to your MPCI policy or selected optional units due to late planting will reduce the applicable yield in an equivalent percentage amount.
  • The ICE Liability Factor is a percent of maximum available liability selected by the insured. The factor is between 50% and 100% of the ICE Liability. The factor is applied to the selected band of coverage to establish the liability per acre.
