Impact of the 2016 RMA Rates on the U.S. Crop Insurance Industry
Annual RMA premium rate changes affect the underlying risk of insurance policies in the U.S. MPCI program. As a result, AIR is providing an update to the U.S. MPCI premium rates that clients can use to enhance the CATRADER® Version 17.0 release of the model, reflecting information for 2016. During this webinar, we discuss the impact of the 2016 RMA rerating, explain why you need to update these rates in CATRADER, and show you how to do so.
