(a) Except as otherwise provided in this section, the secretary is hereby authorized to enter into agreements with primary care safety net clinics, financial institutions, the Kansas development finance authority and other public or private entities, including agencies of the United States government to provide capital loan guarantees against risk of default for eligible primary care safety net clinics in Kansas in accordance with this act. Except as provided in K.S.A. 65-7406, and amendments thereto, for payment for a loan guarantee for which the primary care safety net clinic loan guarantee fund is liable, no claim against the state under this act shall be paid by the state, the secretary of health and environment or any other state agency other than pursuant to an appropriation act of the legislature after such claim has been filed with and considered by the joint committee on special claims against the state. The secretary may enter into agreements with provider-based indigent care clinics for such clinics to act as primary care safety net clinics.

(b) To be eligible for a capital loan guarantee under this act, a primary care safety net clinic shall offer a sliding fee discount for health care and other services provided that is based upon household income and shall serve all persons regardless of ability to pay. The policies to determine patient eligibility based upon income or insurance status may be determined by each primary care safety net clinic, but shall be posted in the primary care safety net clinic and available to potential patients. The patient eligibility policies of a primary care safety net clinic shall reflect the mission of the primary care safety net clinic to provide affordable, accessible primary care to underserved populations in Kansas to be eligible for a capital loan guarantee under this act.

(c) The secretary shall administer the provisions of this act and shall adopt rules and regulations which the secretary deems necessary for the implementation or administration of this act. The loan guarantee agreement with the secretary shall include reporting requirements and financial standards that are appropriate for the type of loan for the borrower. The secretary may enter into contracts that the secretary deems necessary for the implementation or administration of this act. The secretary may impose fees and charges as may be necessary to recover costs incurred for the administration of this act.
