Money paid by family = Money paid by insurer.
1000*.2+(X-1000)*0 + 800 = 1000*.8 + (X -1000)
=> X = 1200

so B?

P.S. Here, actual money paid by insurer is 1200 - 800 (received feom family as copay) = 400.
If we take $800 into consideration, answer should be$2000, but this is not an answer option.

B. 1200

Let the sum be x
Insurance comapny will pay:
0.8*1000 + (x-1000)

Family will pay:
800(towards insurance) + 200(remaining from the first 1000 which insurance does not cover)

So
0.8*1000 + (x-1000) = 800 + 200
800 + x-1000 = 1000
x=1200

Juaz, that was a good catch on the (x - 1000) part of the equation. I understand after looking at your answer that the first thousand is subtracted from the total because it has already been distributed proportionately and accounted for elsewhere in the equation. Good Job!
Good job Juaz   [#permalink] 23 May 2007, 23:53
