Answer: You cannot allow a private policy to have a deductible that is higher than the deductible available under a Standard Flood Insurance Policy (SFIP).  However, a private policy’s deductible can exceed the maximum deductible that’s available under the National Flood Insurance Program for any coverage that exceeds what is available under the NFIP.
