Insuranceopedia explains Requirements of Insurable Risk
An insurance company will only allow a policyholder to pass a loss on to them only if the company is well aware of the consequences involved. It is aware of the following: that a loss should happen by chance and not as the result of a premeditated action, that the loss is predictable and natural (such as death), that the loss is measurable (how much amount of money to cover is determined in advance), that the loss is not catastrophic (and will not make the company insolvent), and that the insurance payment is justifiable if compared to the value of the loss.
