"the administrators of public health care " can not add worries. Add+ed is working as participle and modifying "the administrators of public health care".
But "the administrators of public health care" can worry themselves. Hence we have got C and E. Now E wins because of ||lism. After 'about' we have two nouns marked in blue. "the administrators of public health care" are "worrying about A and B"

Nice explanation above but - I think E doesn't follow proper parallelism... I'll prefer F.
(F)in addition to worrying about cuts in the budget and increases in the cost of living.

Any takers?

Thx for looking. Cheers.!
