1. the action is continued from past. So correct choice shoild have 'have seen'. A and B wrong.
2. D uses 'it' to refer employees. Wrong.
3. Among C and E,

E changes the meaning a little by using present continuous tense, where we need simple present tense.

So C is right.

A. had seen what they pay toward health care increases as companies ask them to contribute more for premiums and deductibles
B. saw what they pay toward health care increased as companies ask them to contribute more to premiums and deductibles
C. have seen what they pay toward health care increase as companies ask them to contribute more to premiums and deductibles
D. have been seeing what they pay toward health care increases as companies asks it to contribute more to premiums and deductibles
E. have seen what they pay toward health care increasing as companies are asking them to contribute more to premiums and deductibles

Well this makes a general assertion and the opening words For years signify continuing action. Eliminate A and B. In D seeing is wrong. In E increasing makes the sentence awkward. C wins.

Here ins't - what they pay toward health care increase a little awkward? (increases sounds better?)
Also, usually it's pay towards.. ?

Original sentence has subject verb as well as tense issue..
The original sentence says...the payments had increased for years but now ceased to increase...
Employees have seen something(what they pay toward health care/payments) increase....
C solves both issues...
