BOOST is a supplemental crop insurance policy that allows a producer to elect either revenue or yield protection bands of coverage at higher coverage levels than those offered through the Multi Peril Crop Insurance (MPCI) program.

Requirements

  • Must have an active RP, RP-HPE or YP policy with either Optional Units (OU) or Enterprise Units (EU).
  • The unit structure for the BOOST policy will follow the underlying MPCI unit structure for the crop (OU, EU or EU by practice).
  • If you fail to purchase MPCI coverage, all BOOST premium is still owed.
  • If the underlying MPCI policy is not with Hudson, all applicable form must be submitted to Hudson as required by the policy.

Available Options

  • Lower Coverage Level: Lower limit of the band coverage and must be the same as the RP or YP elected coverage level.
  • Upper Coverage Level: Upper limit of the band coverage. Available ranges of coverage level bands can be found in the BOOST estimator tool.
  • Max Coverage: A value selected from our premium estimator tool, which will limit the BOOST coverage per acre.
  • Adjustment Factor: A value less than or equal to 1.0. Selecting a value which is less than 1.0 means that your limit of insurance, premium and loss payment will be reduced by this value.
