Fair Plan

Fair Plan

A program in several American states by which the state government provides or subsidizes insurance on properties that otherwise would be uninsurable because they are in high risk areas. For example, a fair plan may insure a coastal property in a hurricane area. As with all insurance, the policyholder must pay a premium to receive the coverage.
