Flood Insurance: FEMA’s Rate-Setting Process Warrants Attention
Orice M. Williams (au)
Questions about the financial status of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) have increased since the 2005 hurricanes, which left the program with an unprecedented $17.4 billion deficit. Among the concerns are the subsidized rates NFIP must provide for about 25% of the policies, mostly for older buildings in high-risk flood zones. And although fully risk-based rates are supposed to reflect actual flood risk, concerns have been raised that they do not. This report evaluates: (1) FEMA’s process for setting full-risk rates to determine whether it produces rates that accurately reflect the risk of flooding; and (2) the process that FEMA uses to set subsidized rates and their effect on the financial condition of NFIP. Charts and tables.
