    of specific medical conditions

    I guess the reason why a can't be the answer is "with" is proper for the possessive meaning, while "of" can mean such type, but I want to be sure....

    Q. Insurance providers often refuse to offer coverage to people ____c_______
    a. of specific medical conditions
    b.have specific conditions of medical
    c.that have specific medical conditions.
    d. having that specific conditions of medicine.
