Yes. Essentially I took the initial tab, made a copy, changed all relevant copays to align with the proposed plan design and reflected any relevant utilization shifts.

My thought behind doing so...

I will counter that I used tuition rates and attrition rates as an interrelated assumption and I MMR'ed.

I justified it in the opposite ways as previous posters discussed: As tuition goes up,...

I did tasks 2 & 4 but structured it as 3 memos: One for 2A, one for 2B, one for 4.

I only just submitted though, so haven't received a grad to confirm that is what they're looking for.

Yeah that's what their case was, but I didn't actually ask what they used, so maybe it was something harder to justify.
