Q. Agreement Between University of Kentucky and Kentucky Medical
Services Foundation (PR 6C)
Chancellor Bosomworth explained that the terms in the document are
essentially the same as those in the agreement approved by the Board on
June 24, 1985. He added that the document has been updated to reflect
dates in the new contract period and to revise the dollar amounts due the
University under Section 5.C and Section 18.A. He explained that Section
18 on Professional Liability Insurance has been revised to reflect the
percentage KMSF will pay for liability insurance, and that the amount for
expenses attendant to the production of clinical income has been increased
from $2,204,241 to $2,237,352.
Mr. Larry Jones moved approval of the agreement between the Board of
Trustees of the University of Kentucky and Kentucky Medical Services
Foundation, Incorporated as presented in PR 6C. Mr. Jones' motion was
seconded by Mr. Hershey and carried without dissent. (See PR 6C at the end
of the Minutes.)
