Health Care Employers

Kansas Locum Tenens (KLT) and Kansas Locum Tenens Plus (KLT+) connect providers with Kansas rural and underserved health employers that need temporary primary and specialty care medical coverage. KLT/KLT+ can help your rural health care organization by:

  • Providing coverage for a physician who needs time off for a personal or professional reason, or filling in when you are short-staffed
  • Offering physicians a work-life balance by lessening call time
  • Supporting the goal to strengthen and expand the rural components of the residency and fellowship programs and the perspectives of the academic faculty
  • Serving as a great recruitment and retention tool as many residents and fellows use KLT as a key component in their practice search

Request Coverage

For an initial request, use the Request Coverage button above. After the initial form is completed and a contract is signed, organizations may email requests as they arise to klt@kumc.edu. Four weeks advance notice is preferred.

Fee Schedule

  • Organizations set their own competitive rates based on fair market value and are 100% paid to the provider
  • Providers must be paid within 2 weeks. Late payments incur a $25 per day late fee paid to the provider
  • The organization requesting coverage provides off-site accommodations
  • Rural Health Education and Services (RHES) does not charge an administrative fee to organizations for service
  • For KLT coverage: An invoice for $500 per coverage will be sent separately at the end of the month. This $500 per coverage KLT fund fee is paid to RHES and goes toward sustaining the medical professional liability insurance sponsorship which is available to assist resident physicians and fellows.
