Definition - What does Difference in Conditions Insurance (DIC) mean?

Difference in conditions (DIC) insurance provides coverage for perils that may be outside the normal scope of risk for a particular asset. People purchase DIC insurance because insurance companies will often only provide coverage for risks that are relatively common. This can result in some people feeling too exposed to rare or less common risks.
