the correct idioms are
require that XY
require X to Y
that require X to Y -----> though i want a confirmation on this
so by this standard the answer E seems best
B becomes inferior may be because it fails for not following the 3rd idiom ! other than this issue i find B oki

I go with B, though reluctantly. The problem I have with option E is that the ambiguity caused by the word THEM in the last part. What does this Them refer to here..the patients or the physicians.

ANSWER Explanation (base on the question maker):

A is flawed because it is redundant to say of the malpractice suits both that they are "past" and "having been filed". B fails to include "to" before "disclose". E is the clearest statement of the facts; it is somewhat flawed in that it leaves open the reading that the malpractice suits could have been filed against the prospective patients, but a logical reader could easily make the judgment from context that "them" refers to the physicians.

I went with B ,,but after closely going through the above discussions I think E is the correct choice. Although E is having its flaws but missing "to" in B makes it grammatically incorrect and hence the wrong choice in this lot.

The state medical review board is considering a new regulation that physicians practicing in state facilities with past malpractice suits having been filed against them are required to disclose any such suits to prospective patients.

B) that requires physicians practicing in state facilities disclose any past malpractice suits filed against them to prospective patients.
E) requiring physicians who practice in state facilities to disclose to prospective patients any past malpractice suits filed against them
Simplifying:
B--> considering a new regulation that requires physicians disclose any suits filed against them to prospective patients.
E--> considering a new regulation requiring physicians who practice to disclose to prospective patients any past malpractice suits filed against them

Placement of THEM is having major impact on the meaning of the sentence than requires X disclose
Cant accept the Spoiler answer still !!!

I marked E but my real question is why requiring is correct ? Isnt a regulation a fact so simple present tense should be correct.

The OA is E. B is incorrect.
In option B 'to' is missing before 'disclose' !! If to would have been there, then it would have been the answer.
