40-2227. Same; definitions. As used in this act, unless the context requires otherwise:

(a) "Long-term care insurance" means any insurance policy primarily advertised, marketed, offered or designed to provide coverage for each covered person on an expense incurred, indemnity, prepaid, or other basis, for one or more necessary or diagnostic, preventive, therapeutic, rehabilitative, maintenance, custodial, residential or personal care services, provided in a setting other than an acute care unit of a hospital. "Long-term care insurance" includes group and individual policies or riders whether issued by insurers, fraternal benefit societies, nonprofit medical and hospital service corporations, prepaid health plans, health maintenance organizations, or any similar organization. "Long-term care insurance" shall not include any insurance policy that is offered primarily to provide basic medicare supplement coverage, basic hospital expense coverage, basic medical-surgical expense coverage, hospital confinement indemnity coverage, major medical expense coverage, disability income protection coverage, accident-only coverage, specified disease or specified accident coverage, or limited benefit health coverage, but the inclusion or attachment of long-term care insurance coverage to one of the foregoing products shall not exempt it from the requirements of this act.

(b) "Applicant" means:

(1) In the case of an individual long-term care insurance policy, the person who seeks to contract for such benefits; and

(2) in the case of a group long-term care insurance policy, the proposed certificateholder.

(c) "Certificate" means any certificate issued under a group long-term care insurance policy that has been delivered or issued for delivery in this state.

(d) "Commissioner" means the commissioner of insurance.

(e) "Group long-term care insurance" means a long-term care insurance policy delivered or issued for delivery in this state and issued to a group as defined in K.S.A. 40-2209, and amendments thereto. No group long-term care insurance coverage may be offered to a resident of this state under a group policy issued in another state to a group defined in K.S.A. 40-2209, and amendments thereto, unless this state, or another state having statutory and regulatory long-term care insurance requirements substantially similar to those adopted in this state, has made a determination that such requirements have been met.

(f) "Policy" means, except as otherwise provided in subsection (e), any individual or group policy, contract, subscriber agreement, rider or endorsement delivered or issued for delivery in this state by an insurer, fraternal benefit society, nonprofit medical and hospital service corporation, prepaid health plan, health maintenance organization or any similar organization.
