You make mistake when posting this question although correct choice is D. I presupposed that "and" before "spending" in choice D does not exist. Because spending should modify the action "require doctors to see more patients", "and" here is incorrect.

I chose E as well. My SC is not consistently at the 700 lvl though. D just sounds very awkward to me

There is definitely typo in answer choices. If the and is removed before spending, D would be the right answer.

impose = require, then spending modifies the clause starting require.. hope this helps

Its all the matter of how you structure and look at three verbs.

E puts impose at a separate level and require and spend at a lower level together essentially meaning

imposing the stricter limit in medical services
requires doctors to see more patient and the doctor spends less time ..

And D puts it differently. here
impose the stricter limits in medical services and require doctors to see more patients
which basically force doctors to spend less time with patient.

So IMO D is better than E though I chosen E
