B,D,E 'see' is not parallel to 'spending'. (to see more patients, and (to) spend less ..)
C 'that' is missing before 'require' to make it parallel with 'that impose'.
A wins. plans imposing X and (plans) requiring A to (b and c).

It should be between C D and E

C and E are giving sense that plans are spending time with each patients which is not the case .D seems correct but the last and :roll: is dubious .If and is not there ,In D participle phrase after comma is correctly modifying doctors.

I see it a little different.

low-end insurance plans..
B) imposing stricter limits on medical services , requiring doctors to see more patients, and spending

Imposing, requiring, and spending. It's low-end insurance plans that were concerned with not the doctors.

A for me
B) should end with "doctors to see AND spend"
C) typical run-on sentence problem whereby dependent clause beginning with "require" should be linked with a conjunction
D) would have been good if "spending" was parallel with the rest. Basically, "and" as conjunction is linking a dependent clause with a phrase (ie spending less time with each) and is a syntax breach.
E) same problem as B) for "spending" verb

There's a typo by the author in choice D - an extra "and" is added to the OQ.
