Palomar vs. NFIP flood insurance
Palomar private flood insurance is an alternative to the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) — a government-backed program run by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) that accounts for around 90% of residential flood insurance policies. 
However, the NFIP’s low coverage limits, 30-day waiting period, and minimal coverage add-ons available have made private flood insurance more and more popular.
Compare Palomar flood insurance to the NFIP to decide which policy makes the most sense for you:
Average annual cost
Maximum home rebuild limit
Maximum personal property limit
Replacement cost building coverage
Replacement cost coverage for belongings
Loss of use coverage
Debris removal coverage
Highest deductible option
