The Kansas Locum Tenens malpractice insurance fund is generously supported by gifts from Earl Merkel, M.D., and his wife Kathleen, of Russell, Kan., and the Dane G. Hansen Foundation of Logan, Kan. These gifts counts toward Far Above: The Campaign for Kansas, the university's $1.2 billion comprehensive fundraising campaign. Far Above seeks support to educate future leaders, advance medicine, accelerate discovery and drive economic growth to seize the opportunities of the future.

The campaign is managed by KU Endowment, the independent, nonprofit organization serving as the official fundraising and fund-management organization for KU. Founded in 1891, KU Endowment was the first foundation of its kind at a U.S. public university.

Primary Care Fee Schedule

KLT services are reimbursed at the coverage rates listed below. In addition, off site lodging will be provided.

Daily Rate (24hrs.)
(minimum 1 day pay required)
$ 1450
Holiday pay (per day): $ 200
Travel Rate (per hour): $ 30
Late Fee* (per day): $ 25

*A new policy requires KLT providers to be paid within two weeks after coverage. Late payments incur a $25 per day fee from the client that gets paid directly to the KLT provider.

Upon completion of the locum tenens coverage, the resident/faculty provider submits an invoice to the rural physician or hospital that includes all charges and information as to whom the check should be made payable. The rural physician or hospital sends the remittance for the coverage to Rural Health Education and Services — Kansas City office. If the remittance is for coverage provided by a resident, the check is forwarded to the resident. If a faculty member provided the coverage, the remittance is forwarded to that faculty member's departmental Foundation. The departmental Foundation reimburses the faculty member for providing the coverage.
