bmwhype2, I believe that there is a typo in your question, both options C and E are exactly the same.

(E) not only helps to control the employer’s costs, and also helps
Hope you get the difference

(C) not only helps to control the employer’s costs, but also to limit – What is on the right of ‘not only(helps to control) should be maintained on the right of ‘but also ( helps to limit); just to say but also ‘to limit’ distorts correlative conjunction parallelism
