Moral hazard decreases insurers' underwriting willingness and insurants' payment willingness, which condition the efficiency of disaster insurance market. The paper provided the behavioral strategys in disaster insurance market according to signal transmission mechanism and solved the profit functions. By analyzing the sub-game refined Bayesian Nash equilibrium, the author offered pricing constraints for disaster insurance under moral risk and the corresponding suggestions.
