These analyses are detailed in Appendixes A and B. We present our analysis of the effects of TRIA in redistributing the costs of the losses incurred in the various attack scenarios in Chapter Four. Chapter Five presents our analysis of the provisions of TRIA that affect the redistribution of these losses and how changes in these provisions would change the ways in which TRIA would redistribute the losses. Finally, Chapter Six presents some general conclusions of our analysis and their implications for the future of TRIA.
Uninsured Losses Under TRIA TRIA helps reduce uninsured terrorism losses by making coverage available and by limiting target insurers’ exposure. However, our Summary xxxi analysis shows that, even with TRIA in place, a high fraction of losses would go uninsured in each of the attack scenarios examined. Uninsured fractions range from 13 percent of the total loss in the indoor anthrax scenario to 57 percent in the outdoor anthrax scenario. Above we discussed two options for reducing the expected uninsured losses: (1) extending the “make-available” provision of TRIA to include CBRN attack coverage and (2) making terrorism coverage mandatory.
2) ____________ 1 Estimating the TRIA-covered fraction of total loss using the WTC losses from Hartwig (2004) gives a value very similar (within 5 percent) to the value we get using the MOB simulation results. 2), respectively, for the modeled outdoor anthrax release in a major urban area. 2). Target Insurer Loss The target insurer loss is the target insurers’ share of the TRIAcovered losses, which consists of deductibles and co-payments made by primary insurers in lines eligible for reimbursement under TRIA.
