We propose a hybrid classical-quantum approach for modeling transition probabilities in health and disability insurance. The modeling of logistic disability inception probabilities is formulated as a support vector regression problem. Using a quantum feature map, the data are mapped to quantum states belonging to a quantum feature space, where the associated kernel is determined by the inner product between the quantum states. This quantum kernel can be efficiently estimated on a quantum computer. We conduct experiments on the IBM Yorktown quantum computer, fitting the model to disability inception data from a Swedish insurance company.
