In property insurance, amount that an insured does not have to pay when a loss exceeds a predetermined sum; here the insurance company pays more than 100% of the loss, so that the deductible amount specified in a contract "vanishes." For example, if a deductible amount is $100, an insurance company may pay 125% of the losses exceeding $100,150% of the losses exceeding $200, and if the losses exceed $300, the company pays the total amount of the loss (so that the insured does not assume any deductible for losses over $300). In another application an insured pays 125% of all losses over $100, the deductible disappears for any loss of $500 or more.
