Farm Bill Amendment (15-CCIP-Farm Bill) modifies the provisions of the Common Crop Insurance Policy Basic Provisions (CCIP) for the 2015 and succeeding crop years for all crops with a 2015 contract change date on or after June 30, 2014, and for the 2016 and succeeding crop years for all crops with a 2015 contract change date prior to June 30, 2014.

CAT Endorsement (15-cat) attaches to specific crop provisions when CAT coverage is selected by the insured.

4

Common Crop Policy Basic Provisions (11-br) apply with the crop provisions.

5

The CAT coverage offered under ARPI is equivalent to the CAT coverage previously offered under the Group Risk Plan (GRP) which ARPI is replacing. Group coverage is required to be 'comparable coverage' to an individual plan, for which CAT is statutorily defined as 50 percent of yield and 55 percent of price. RMA has determined that comparable area-based coverage is 65 percent of yield and 45 percent of price.

Farm Bill Amendment (15-ARPI-Farm Bill) modifies the provisions of the Area Risk Protection Insurance Basic Provisions (ARPI) for the 2015 and succeeding crop years.
