If an installment payment becomes 91 days overdue, the entire amount outstanding shall become immediately due and payable, including all amounts of interest at the rate prescribed.

(d) The total repayment obligation imposed under all agreements entered into as provided in K.S.A. 74-3266, and amendments thereto, may be satisfied at any time prior to graduation from the accredited school of osteopathic medicine by making a single lump sum payment equal to the total of (1) the entire amount to be repaid under all such agreements upon failure to satisfy the obligations under such agreements to practice in Kansas, plus (2) all amounts of interest accrued thereon at the rate prescribed under this section.

(e) The state board of regents is authorized to turn any repayment account arising under the osteopathic medical service scholarship program over to a designated loan servicer or collection agency, the state not being involved other than to receive payments from the loan servicer or collection agency at the interest rate prescribed under this section.
