Hd tapes insurance

Thing is that when you shood a movie on a film stock, you have to insure the negative film roles, so if something goes wrong with the film stock you have the money to go back to production again.We normaly insure the negative for the 80% of a total production value.We are shooting a new feature on a HD cinealta camera. I would like to know how it is with insuring the shoot HD production tapes. Since they are less prone to fail and the risk is lower, than it is with the film stock, is the insurance policy also lower and for the less percentage or is it the same? I would like to hear any experiences since insurance agents in our country do not have a clue what is HD to begin with...
thanks a lot for your kind answers.
