The answer is B - 1200 dollars.

How much does the family have to pay ?
Insurance cost + 200 dollars of the 1st 1000 dollars in expenses
= 800 + 200 = 1000

now this is equal to the actual money that insurance pays
= 800 of the 1st 1000 + (1000 - x ) {where x is the actual medical expense}
800 + 1000 - x = 1000
x = $1200.

800 + 1000 - x = 1000
x = $1200.


From the equation listed above will you not get 800 as the answer for x?

Whoops minor typo , its actually x-1000
so the correct equation is
x-1000 + 800 = 1000
x is 1200 (my notebook had the correct equation thankfully :) )
