Upon completion of the coverage, the KLT provider submits an invoice to the employer that includes all charges and information as to whom the check should be made payable. The employer sends the remittance for the coverage to the Rural Health Education and Services office for final review. If the remittance is for coverage provided by a resident/fellow, the check is then forwarded to them. If a faculty member provided the coverage, the remittance is forwarded to the faculty member's departmental Foundation. The departmental Foundation then reimburses the faculty member. The $500 per coverage KLT fund fee (to help sustain the medical professional liability insurance sponsorships for residents and fellows) invoice will be sent to the organization separately at the end of the month.
