IMO B.

to people is parallel with to worker and who refers to worker appropriately.

It might seem kinda crazy, but for me there is no correct answer...

C & E are out because of the use of "that", which makes the sentence incorrect, as uncovered then refers to jobs instead of workers.

A is wrong because of the tense used (establish).

B uses establishing, is parallel and has the correct use of "who". But, "to workers who are changing jobs otherwise could be uncovered..." does not have a complete meaning (it should be "to workers changing jobs who otherwise could..."

In D, i dont like the construction "For establishing". Some of you might say the sentence ain't parallel, but I think it wouldn't be necessary to repeat the "to" before workers.

I really don't know what to make of it.

The proposed health care bill would increase government regulation to health insurance, [establish standards that would guarantee wider access to peole with past health problems and to workers changing jobs who] otherwise could be uncovered for months

a] establish standards that would guarantee wider access to peole with past health problems and to workers changing jobs who

b] establishing standards that would guarantee wider access to peole with past health problems and to workers who are changing jobs

c] to establish standards that would guarantee wider access to peole with past health problems and to workers who change jobs that
d] for establishing standards that would guarantee wider access to peole with past health problems and workers changing jobs who
e] for the establishment of standards that would guarantee wider access to peole with past health problems and to workers who are changing jobs that

A,D -- out who refers to jobs.
C,E jobs that could be uncovered for months..
"uncovered for months" incorrectly refers to jobs instead of workers.

Finally chose B.

As I told you in my first post, I was not convinced that there was a correct answer among the ones provided. So, I went looking for some light to shed on the problem.

It turns out option B was indeed, as I suspected, missing a piece. The answer should be "establishing standards that would guarantee wider access to peole with past health problems and to workers who are changing jobs and".

So, I choose B.

B seems better than other options (as already explained by others).

In B i am finding it difficult to understand " who are changing jobs ".....Why do we need a present continuous tense.

It essentially means "workers who keep changing jobs....".
