39-2008. License; application and renewal. (a) Upon receipt of an initial or renewal application for a license, the licensing agency, with the approval of the state fire marshal, shall issue a license if the applicant is fit and qualified and if the center, facility, hospital or provider meets the requirements established under this act and such rules and regulations as are adopted under the provisions of this act. The licensing agency, the state fire marshal and the county, city-county or multi-county health departments or their designated representatives shall make such inspections and investigations as are necessary to determine the conditions existing in each case, and a written report of such inspections and investigations and the recommendations of the state fire marshal and the county, city-county or multi-county health department or their authorized agents shall be filed with the licensing agency. A copy of any inspection report required by this section shall be furnished to the applicant.

(b) The initial application for licensure and renewal of licensure fees for a license shall be fixed by the secretary by rules and regulations. The initial application for licensure fee shall be paid to the secretary when the license is applied for and annually thereafter. The fee shall not be refundable. Fees in effect under this subsection immediately prior to the effective date of this act shall continue in effect on and after the effective date of this act until a different fee is established by the secretary by rules and regulations.

(c) Each license shall be issued only for the premises or providers named in the application, or both, and shall not be transferable or assignable. The license shall be posted in a conspicuous place in the center, facility, hospital or provider's principal location. If the annual report is not so filed and a renewal of licensure fee, if any, is not paid, such license shall be automatically denied or revoked. Any license granted under the provisions of this act shall state the type of facility or service for which the license is granted, the number of individuals for whom granted, the person or persons to whom granted, the date and such additional information and special limitations deemed appropriate by the licensing agency.

(d) A license, unless sooner suspended or revoked, shall remain in effect until the date of expiration specified by the secretary. Licensees seeking renewal shall file a renewal application containing such information in such form as the licensing agency prescribes together with payment of any required annual fee. Upon review and approval by the licensing agency and the state fire marshal or their duly authorized agents, a license shall be issued and effective until the date of expiration.

(e) (1) Programs and treatments provided by a community mental health center that have been previously licensed by the secretary for aging and disability services and that have also been accredited by the commission on accreditation of rehabilitation facilities or the joint commission, or another national accrediting body approved by the secretary for aging and disability services, shall be granted a license renewal based on such accreditation.

(2) The Kansas department for aging and disability services shall inspect accredited community mental health centers to determine compliance with state licensing standards and rules and regulations not covered by the accrediting entity's standards. Community mental health centers receiving accreditation shall continue to be subject to inspections and investigations by the Kansas department for aging and disability services resulting from complaints.
