Get Free Referrals while Helping Florida Homeowners Find Coverage

The Florida Market Assistance Plan (FMAP) is a free and convenient referral service that matches Florida property insurance shoppers with agents able to secure coverage from Florida-authorized insurance companies in their area.

Authorized by the Florida Legislature in 1985, FMAP’s online referral service is designed for personal residential property. Direct referrals are available for commercial residential, commercial nonresidential or liability coverage.

Participating agents can search FMAP’s database in real-time and set up daily alerts from the automated search feature. Receive email notifications when a request for coverage matches your specific search criteria.

Note: FMAP is not available for workers' compensation, employer's liability or motor vehicle coverage.

Agents must meet the following criteria to participate in FMAP:

  • You must be a licensed Florida agent.
  • Agents must have direct appointments with at least 10 Florida-authorized personal residential insurance companies.
    • The 10 appointments must include companies that are authorized to write business and have informed the Florida Department of Financial Services (DFS) that they are currently writing new personal residential business.
    • Qualifying appointments do not include Citizens Property Insurance Corporation (Citizens), surplus lines carriers or MGA/agency appointments.
