Clear B

Explanation: since its says their, so medical patient must be plural, hence choose eliminate A, D, and E.

Now they have a legal right is logically correct rather than there is a legal right.

Idiom: Require + subject [x] + to + verb

Choices D and E are OUT

Idiom: Tell + subject + that

Choice A is out

Between B and C, B hold the original meaning of the sentence. The right is there and they HAVE it.

Answer is B

Can someone please elucidate the consensus response and elaborate on their thinking, as I am having difficulty with the sentence construction?

I find the use of a singular "hospital" to be confusing and the use of their discharge as incompatible witht he rest of the sentence. Any ideas?

(D) that hospitals tell a Medicare patient of their
(E) that hospitals tell a Medicare patient that they have a

it would be patients here not patient as patient is not logical and awkward and if patient is correct then they/their are incorrect wich would eliminate all so patients is correct => a,d,e out
they have a is better than there is a here so

B is correct
