NECESSITY, FUNCTION, AND CONFORMITY: KRS 216A.070(3) authorizes the Board of Licensure for Long-term Care Administrators to promulgate administrative regulations necessary for the proper performance of its duties. KRS 216A.090 requires the holder of a license to renew that license biennially. This administrative regulation establishes the requirements for renewal, late renewal, inactive licensure, and reinstatement of a license.
Section 1. (1) A license shall be renewed every two (2) years from date of issue or from date of last renewal. To apply for renewal, a licensee shall:
(a) Submit a completed Renewal Form to the board; and
(b) Pay to the board the appropriate renewal fee established in 201 KAR 6:060 for the renewal of a license.
(2) A sixty (60) day grace period shall be allowed after the renewal date, during which time a licensee may continue to practice and may renew the license upon payment of the late renewal fee established in 201 KAR 6:060.
(a) Except as provided by KRS 36.450, a license not renewed by the end of the sixty (60) day grace period shall terminate based on the failure of the licensee to renew in a timely manner.
(b) Upon termination, the licensee shall not practice in the Commonwealth.
(3) A license shall be deemed inactive if:
(a) The board receives a written request seeking inactive status from the licensee;
(b) A licensee pays to the board the inactive licensee fee established in 201 KAR 6:060 for an inactive license;
(c) The grace period established in subsection (2) of this section has not expired; and
(d) The license is in good standing when the inactive status request is received.
(4)(a) After the sixty (60) day grace period, in order to apply for reinstatement, an individual with a terminated license shall submit a completed Reinstatement Application and pay the reinstatement fee established in 201 KAR 6:060.
(b) A person who applies for reinstatement after expiration of a license shall not be required to meet current licensure requirements, except those established in 201 KAR 6:070, Section 10, if reinstatement application is made within two (2) years from the date of expiration.
(5)(a) In order to apply for reactivation, an individual with an inactive license shall submit a completed Inactive Renewal and Reactivation Form accompanied by the reactivation fee established in 201 KAR 6:070.
(b) An individual who has continuously maintained inactive status and who makes application to return to active status shall not be required to meet current licensure requirements except those established by 201 KAR 6:070, Section 10.
(6) A licensee who fails to reinstate a license within two (2) years after its termination shall not have it renewed, restored, reissued, or reinstated. A person may apply for and obtain a new license by meeting the current requirements for licensure established in KRS 216A.080 and 201 KAR Chapter 6.
(7) A suspended license shall be subject to expiration and termination and shall be renewed as provided in this administrative regulation. Renewal shall not entitle the licensee to engage in the practice until the suspension has ended, or is otherwise removed by the board and the right to practice is restored by the board.
(8) A revoked license shall be subject to expiration or termination and shall not be renewed. If it is reinstated, the licensee shall pay the reinstatement fee as set forth in subsection (2) of this section and the renewal fee as set forth in subsection (1) of this section.
(9) A licensee applying for renewal, late renewal, or reinstatement of licensure shall show evidence of completion of continuing education as established by 201 KAR 6:070.
(10) An inactive licensee shall renew his or her inactive license biennially by submitting an application on the Inactive Renewal and Reactivation Form and submitting payment of the fee established in 201 KAR 6:060.
