Insurance Company X is considering issuing a new policy to cover services required by elderly people who suffer from diseases that afflict the elderly. Premiums for the policy must be low enough to attract customers. Therefore, Company X is concerned that the income from the policies would not be sufficient to pay for the claims that would be made.
Which of the following strategies would be most likely to minimize Company X's losses on the policies?
Attracting middle-aged customers unlikely to submit claims for benefits for many years
Insuring only those individuals who did not suffer any serious diseases as children
Including a greater number of services in the policy than are included in other policies of lower cost
Insuring only those individuals who were rejected by other companies for similar policies
Insuring only those individuals who are wealthy enough to pay for the medical services
