But, qualitatively, the effects of introducing positively or negatively correlated background risks are the same as under expected utility. More generally, Schlesinger (1997) has shown that introducing an independent background risk in a decision model with risk aversion does not change the predictions obtained under a single source of risk: full insurance is optimal under a fair premium; partial or full insurance may be optimal under a loaded premium; and a deductible policy remains optimal. , provided the traded securities and insurance contracts make possible to cover any future contingency.

Other insurance devices to deal with adverse selection are experience rating and risk categorization. They may be used as substitutes or complements to discriminating contracts. Dionne (1983) and Dionne and Lasserre (1985) on one hand, and Cooper and Hayes (1987) on the other hand, extended Stiglitz's (1977) monopoly model to multi-period contracts, respectively with an infinite horizon and a finite horizon, and with full commitment by the insurer to the terms of the contract. 2 ! Hosios and Peters (1989) extended the finite horizon case to limited commitment.

Using the distinction between risk aversion of order 1 and risk aversion of order 2,14 Segal and Spivak (1990) have shown that Mossin's (1968) result on the optimality of partial coverage under a loaded insurance premium does not hold necessarily if risk aversion is of order 1 (see also Schlesinger, 1997). Now, risk aversion of order 1 may occur under the expected utility model (if the utility is not differentiable at the endowment point), or under some generalizations of this model, such as Yaari's (1987) dual theory, or Quiggin's (1982) rank-dependent expected utility theory.
