Crop insurance policies normally require arbitration as the course of action required for a producer who wishes to challenge a claim denial.  While crop insurance is common and widely used, producers may not be familiar with the arbitration requirement or the arbitration process. 
 
An article, “Crop Insurance Arbitration:  What is Arbitration, When is it Required, and How Does it Work?” by Grant Ballard, attorney with the Banks Law Firm in Little Rock, Arkansas, is a helpful resource.

 

This article provides information on the arbitration process, the arbitration clause typically found in crop insurance policies, when arbitration is required, appeal of an arbitration award, and state law actions against insurance providers.
