Except B, all have problems.

A, D and E are plagued with pronoun problems.
C is equally messy.

I guess Im going against the majority here and picking E...I believe the word "that" should be included in the sentence because when words such as "requires" or "mandatory" are used as a verb, "that" must follow as the object of the verb.

Looking at this question again I don't see how E can be right because singular "patient" doesn't go with "their." I have no clue on this one.

There appears to be a problem in the question stem. It should be "legal right [b]to[/i] challenge", not "of".

B also incorrectly has "hospital" singular and not plural.

All five answers have things wrong with them. Can anyone double-check the question for typos or errors?

legal to challenge instead of legal of

macca,
Can you tell the source of this question? As I also thought in the similar lines as Chet.... this should qualify for subjunctive ...."that + first form of the verb" but D and E both are using a patient and Plural pronoun hence should be ruled out.So may be we have to choose the best answer choice than the correct one.

Clearly B, though I was misled at first too!
A - "a Medicare patient" is wrong, since you have "they" in the second part.
C- "there is a" is wrong, just doesn't make sense.
D&E - a Medicare patient is wrong as in A.
So, you're left with B!!!
