D is my choice. plans that impose....... and require doctors.......
Although C is tempting because of its parallism but it means plans spend less time with each other which is wrong.

IMO D. // "impose"..."require" and "spending" without and is the right choice because they will spend less time due to the fact that the insurance plans require them to see more patients.

I think it should be E.Requiring doctors to see more patients, and spending is a subordinate clause and hence comes after the main clause in the -ing form.

the OA is D... but to me, it looked like "spending" was modifying "patients"... any thoughts?

In a real exam, not sure if I would have caught this...

so we can agree its one of the 3 last choices (c, d, e) due to the "that" modifier

At this point, the approach I used was to single out the 'least wrong answer' instead of the 'most correct'.

Both C and E use parallellism. This is blatantly wrong as mentioned in earlier posts (restrictive plans cannot spend less time with patients).

In this case, D is the least inccorect.
