In accordance with such Waivers, the KCE provides notice that the Implementation Period KCE Activities arrangement described below is being provided under the protection of the KCC Implementation Period Waivers.

Implementation Period KCE Activities: The Board of Managers of Alabama Kidney Care Entity, LLC (the “CE”) has duly authorized the following arrangement and has made a bona fide determination that this arrangement is reasonably related to the performance of KCE Activities during the Implementation Period because the arrangement is in preparation for and will promote the future accountability for the quality, cost, and overall care for KCE Beneficiaries.
