IMO D.

Well cannot provide you with apt reasons as I have just started with SC (I don't know the SC rules). D sounds more logical than other choices.

If someone can post OA with explanation, that will be gr8.

First, we can determine that "that impose" is necessary and eliminate A&B. That leaves us with C,D, and E.

C is incorrect because it incorrectly uses parallelism for the series. While the verbs used are correct, the way the verbs are used changes the meaning of the sentence.
In C, the logic follows this : Insurance plans impose, require and spend. Well, that's not what the original sentence means. The doctor sepend less time, not the insurance plans. Throw out C.

Because I think D is correct, I'll go to E.

E uses "requiring doctors". The entire sentence is awkward. If it is supposed to be parallel, it fails because the verbs are not parallel. If the "requiring doctors" is supposed to show some of the stricter limits, the sentence is incorrect as it should say "that impose stricter limits on medical services, which require doctors to see..."

D is correct for proper use of parallel verbs. "insurance plans that impose...and require..." This is parallel and the meaning of the sentence is the same as the original.

It should be D,

A and B are out because of not using 'that'

C and E are out cause 'spend/ing' incorrectly refers to the insurance plans and not the patients.

patients, spending.... in C

Spending here correctly modifies patients. The removal of the comma and/or use of and makes the word refer back to insurance plans in C and E.

What is the OA, I will feel like a dork if OA is anything else after this explanation!!! :-D

Part of learning is figuring out why we're wrong and not doing it again! Don't feel like a dork for getting something. Learn from it and don't worry about what anyone else thinks.
