A government agency that reimburses its clients for bills they have paid for medical care has had this year’s budget cut.

Which of the following, if true, is the best criticism of the agency’s plan? (A) Hospitals and physicians typically hold patients responsible for the ultimate payment of their bills. (B) The agency cannot save money by cutting staff because it is already understaffed. (C) Some clients borrow money to pay their medical bills; they will pay forty extra days of interest on these loans. (D) Some clients pay their medical bills immediately, but they often take more than forty days to file with the agency for reimbursement. (E) The agency’s budget was cut by more than$180 million last year.

I agree its C.

The goals are to save money without cutting reimbursements and not hurt their clients financially. C would cause a situation where they were hurting their clients financially.
