All Kansas postgraduate training programs approved by the Kansas Board of Healing Arts provide continuing coverage for any future claims or suits that may result from the postgraduate training program. This continuing coverage is provided without the necessity of the health care provider satisfying the required five-year compliance requirement. Therefore, a doctor establishing private practice after completing a Kansas postgraduate training program may obtain the required basic professional liability insurance coverage at a first year claims-made rate.
Residents who engage in moonlighting activities which are not part of the residency training program should obtain separate basic professional liability insurance coverage for those activities. One of the few sources for this specific coverage is the Health Care Provider Insurance Availability Plan. Applications for Fund tail coverage for moonlighting activities of residents is usually submitted when the postgraduate training is completed and the doctor is no longer rendering professional services as a Kansas health care provider.
