An ordinary deductible of d : With the deductible, the policy pays nothing if X d and pays X- d if X > d . (a) The per-payment random variable Y P is given by Y P = undefined , X d X- d, X > d = X- d | X > d. (b) The per-loss random variable Y L is given by Y L = , X d X- d, X > d = ( X- d ) + = X- X d. (c) The mean of Y P is given by E ( Y P ) = E ( X- d | X > d ) = e ( d ) = R d S ( x ) dx 1- F ( d ) . (d) The mean of Y L is given by E ( Y L ) = E [( X- d ) + ] = E ( X )- E ( X d ) = Z d S ( x ) dx. (e) The relationship between the moments of Y P and Y L : E Y P k = E Y L k 1- F ( d ) , k = 1 , 2 ,.... (f) The per-payment random variable Y P is also called excess loss variable or left truncated and shifted variable and the per-loss random variable Y L is also called left censored and shifted variable. They have been discussed in detail in Part 1. (g) E ( Y L ) and E ( Y P ) are also called expected cost per loss and expected cost per payment , respectively, for the ordinary deductible. (h) See Part 1 for distributions and more results about Y P and Y L . 1 2. A franchise deductible of d : With the deductible, the policy pays nothing if X d and pays X if X > d . (a) The per-payment random variable Y P f is given by Y P f = undefined , X d X, X > d = X | X > d. (b) The per-loss random variable Y L f is given by Y L f = , X d, X, X > d. (c) The per-payment random variables Y P and Y P f are conditional positive random variables and defined only for X > d . In particular, Y P > 0 and Y P f > d hold. (d) The per-loss random variables Y L and Y L f are mixed nonnegative ran- dom variables and defined for all X . In particular, Pr { Y L = 0 } = Pr { Y L f = } = Pr { X d } = F ( d )....
