Kan. Admin. Regs. § 97-1-5a - Priority for admission

Current through Register Vol. 40, No. 39, September 30, 2021

(a) Priority criteria. Admission shall be granted pursuant to K.S.A. 76-1908(g) and K.S.A. 76-1954(g)(1), and amendments thereto.
(1) The first priority for admission shall be given to veterans who have no adequate means of support. Within this group, priority shall be based on the severity of medical care required and the ability to pay for health care.
(2) The second priority for admission shall be given to a veteran's spouse or surviving spouse, parents, or children who have no adequate means of support, with priority based on the criteria specified in paragraph (a)(1) of this regulation.
(3) The third priority shall be given to veterans who have a means of support.
(4) The fourth priority shall be given to a veteran's spouse or surviving spouse, parents, or children who have a means of support.
(b) Residence halls. The superintendent of the KSH or KVH shall consult with that person's medical staff to assist in the prioritization of members.
(c) Cottages.
(1) Cottages, which are located only at the KSH, shall be available to eligible members, including those in need of domiciliary care.
(A) If domiciliary care is needed, the veteran member shall show that the care will be provided by that member's spouse, parent, or child. If a family member can not provide domiciliary care, the KSH superintendent shall be so notified, and the veteran member shall be directed to undergo a medical evaluation to determine whether that person can reside alone.
(B) If the KSH superintendent suspects that an applicant or a veteran member needs domiciliary care, the superintendent may direct that applicant or veteran member to undergo a medical evaluation to determine whether that person can reside alone.
(C) If the medical staff determines that the veteran member needs domiciliary care and resides alone, the KSH superintendent may direct that the veteran member be placed in the domiciliary unit for care until a permanent arrangement is made.
(2) No cottage shall be initially assigned to the spouse, parent, or child of a deceased veteran member. If the veteran member dies, the surviving spouse, parent, or child shall have 180 days to vacate the premises. Before the end of the 180-day period, any surviving nonveteran spouse may move to a domiciliary unit or a one-bedroom cottage, if available, at the rental rate established for non-veterans. If a one-bedroom cottage is not available, the superintendent may allow the nonveteran spouse to remain by exception in the two-bedroom cottage past the 180-day period, contingent upon pending admissions.
