Fixed-Reimbursement Insurance: Basic Properties and Comparative Statics
In a number of settings, insurance contracts specify a fixed reimbursement in the event of a loss which is not conditioned on the size of the realized loss. In this article, we explore the theoretical properties of this form of insurance and draw comparisons with other types of insurance policies, such as those based on coinsurance and deductibles. We also examine links between our results and those from the literature on precautionary saving. Copyright 2003 The Journal of Risk and Insurance.
