Sentence has parallelism:
A, D and E are not parallel – eliminate it
B and C are parallel OK –
C: describes plans – hold it


a) imposing stricter limits on medical services and requiring doctors to see more patients, and spend
b) imposing stricter limits on medical services, requiring doctors to see more patients, and spending
c) that impose stricter limits on medical services, require doctors to see more patients, and spend
d) that impose stricter limits on medical services and require doctors to see more patients, spending(run-on)
e) that impose stricter limits on medical, requiring doctors to see more patients and spending

Answer: C

D

how doctors can see more patients ,of course, by spending less time with each of this patients.
C is distraction .HOw can Insurance plan or medical service can "spend" less time (B,C,E out). "Spend" in choice A seems to be parallel with "be enrolled", if so it is not what the sentence intends to say.

I can see what is wrong with each answer choice, but I am still confused as to how the last portion in D) is clearly referring to doctors:

'..lower- end insurance plans[that impose stricter limits on medical services], [requiring doctors to see more patients], and spending less time with each'

'that impose...' is referring to 'insurance plans'
'requiring doctors..' is referring to the action in the previous clause

so, how is, ',and spending less time with each' referring to doctors?
the comma is used to isolate the modifier 'requiring..' and therefore also isolate 'doctors'?
and now, the last portion now seems to refer back to 'insurance plans'???

thanks!

Should be 'E'.

Among lower-paid workers, union members are less likely than nonunion members to be enrolled in lower-end insurance plans imposing stricter limits on medical services and requiring doctors to see more patients, and spend less time with each
b) imposing stricter limits on medical services, requiring doctors to see more patients, and spending
c) that impose stricter limits on medical services, require doctors to see more patients, and spend
d) that impose stricter limits on medical services and require doctors to see more patients, spending
e) that impose stricter limits on medical services, requiring doctors to see more patients and spending

I think that 'services' is missing is option 'e'

'requiring doctor to see' and 'spending less time with...' are the results expected from imposing the stricter limits.
Thus 'E' makes more sense.

'a' is not parallel.
'b' is incorrect. 'that impose' is better than 'imposing' as the former clearly refers to the plans.
'c' doesn't make sense because the 'require to see' and 'spend less time with...' are the results expected from imposing the stricter limits
'd' not parallel

My doubt in question answer about the use of Comma+ verb ing
So far we know comma+verb ing refers to preceding clause or sub of preceding clause.

But here "spending" refers to "Doctors" which is not the subject of preceding clause.
In exam time only depending on that issue I may eliminate the right choice D.
