The vast majority of a person’s health-care expenditures go toward curative measures such as hospitalizations after injuries and care for existing illnesses. Mike’s employer does not provide health insurance to his part-time employees, including Mike. However, the employer does reimburse employees for a flu shot each winter.

Mike’s employer’s seemingly inconsistent behavior in regard to health-care expenses is best explained by which of the following?

(A) Health insurance rarely covers preexisting illnesses.
(B) Part-time employees are usually covered by the insurance of a spouse or parent with full-time employment.
(C) Few employers offer health insurance to part-time employees.
(D) Flu shots prevent illness that could lead to lost work days.
(E) Health insurance premiums are on the rise.

+1 for D.


D. Flu shots prevent illness that could lead to lost work days. --> Correct

The logical gap here is to find the plausible reason for why an employer would not offer health insurance for his part time employees, but reimburse employees for a flu shot each winter.

Reason : So as to evade some more financial loss that accrues as a result of the sickness.

Hence, D.

Employer has to reimburse the payments for flu shots during winter because flu shots prevent lost working days.

D is correct choice.
