Definitions for "Stop loss"
A form of excess of loss reinsurance. Operates on the basis of aggregate losses. Thus a typical cover will pay the reinsured's aggregate losses in excess of a specified LOSS RATIO. The cover provided may be subject to a measure of CO-REINSURANCE. Often used for certain types of business not amenable to usual methods of reinsurance, such as Hail, and as an ultimate protection to the reinsured's net retained account in many other classes. Formerly also known as Excess of Loss Ratio reinsurance. Under AGGREGATE EXCESS OF LOSS reinsurance the deductible and the reinsurer's limit of liability are expressed in terms of monetary amounts rather than Loss Ratios.
