On second look I think you are right, there is pronoun ambiguity in E

the right answer is B, but it's very strange that "federal government requires only one hospitals". However, this is the only way to eliminate the problems with THEIR latter in the sentence.
By the way, THERE IS/ARE often wrong in the GMAT, constructing awkward sentences, according to my experience.
Can any one comment your vision of THERE IS/ARE constructions?

Thanx.

A. hospitals to tell a Medicare patient of their

B. hospital to tell Medicare patients that they have a

C. hospitals to tell Medicare patients that there is a

D. that hospitals tell a Medicare patient of their

E. that hospitals tell a Medicare patient that they have a

legal right of challenge their discharge if they feel they are being sent home prematurely.

In the sentence they means patients. So E , D and A are out. In C,
hospitals and patients both are plural so they can mean both hospitals and patients. So C also out. But B sounds illogical.

why b correct?
in b cant we say that.."they" is ambiguous and may refer to either patients or hospitals.

n in c "there" seems to be okay without any ambiguity .

Clearly they can either refer to hospitals or to patients.
