Flood insurance premiums under NFIP are not determined the same as homeowners policy premiums. NFIP premiums typically reflect flood risk—the higher a dwelling is built above what’s called the Base Flood Elevation (BFE), the lower the premium will be —because the potential for flood damage is diminished by elevation.
