Gavop analyzed the net savings from home insurance between higher and lower deductible plans in Pharr, Texas using a hypothetical claim amount. The study assumes a higher deductible value of $2,500 and a lower value of $500. The study shows that for an insurance claim of $2,500, homeowners save $1,940 in the total yearly expenditure by choosing the lower deductible insurance plan instead of the higher deductible one. For the lower deductible plan, the median yearly premium paid by citizens is $390 and the total yearly expenditure is $890. For the higher deductible plan, these values are $330 and $2,830. The following graph illustrates these figures.
