    Rising health insurance costs and harsh social stigmas ... many employers to overlook

    Rising health insurance costs and harsh social stigmas .... many employers to overlook workers' mental health needs, but ignoring the problem ... more than addressing it.

    a) will cause / had cost
    b) cause / will have cost
    c) are causing / may have cost
    d) caused / has cost
    e) have caused / should have cost

    The question was wasked in an official exam in Turkey. C was given as correct. Why is D not correct? I think D is even better than C. Thanks.

    (not bhaisahab)
    B is wrong. I prefer C to D (more natural), but it obviously depends on what the sentence is trying to say.
