19-4007. Contracts for services with nonprofit corporations; schedule of charges; annual financial report contents; approval of establishment of corporation by secretary for aging and disability services; annual report; transfer of proceeds of tax levy to state agency. (a) If the board or boards of county commissioners desire to provide either mental health services or services for people with intellectual disability, or both such services, and to levy the taxes authorized in K.S.A. 19-4004, and amendments thereto, but determine that it is more practicable to contract for such services with a nonprofit corporation, such board or boards may contract with the nonprofit corporation to provide either mental health services or services for people with intellectual disability, or both such services, for the residents of the county or counties. In lieu of contracting with a nonprofit corporation to provide services for people with intellectual disability, a board of county commissioners may establish an intellectual disability governing board for the purpose of allowing this board to contract for and on behalf of the board of county commissioners with a nonprofit corporation to provide services for people with intellectual disability. The board or boards entering into such a contract with a nonprofit corporation, or the intellectual disability governing board authorized to contract with a nonprofit corporation under this section, are hereby authorized to pay the amount agreed upon in such contract from the proceeds of the tax or taxes levied pursuant to K.S.A. 19-4004, and amendments thereto, for mental health services or intellectual disability services, or for both such services. The nonprofit corporation may not deny service to anyone because of inability to pay for the same, but the nonprofit corporation may establish a schedule of charges for services to those who are financially able to pay for such services. The nonprofit corporation shall annually provide the board or boards of county commissioners with a complete financial report showing the amount of fees collected, the amount of tax money received under the contract, and any other income. The financial report shall also show the nonprofit corporation's disbursements, including salaries paid to each person employed by the nonprofit corporation. No such nonprofit corporation shall be organized to receive public funds raised through taxation or public solicitation, or both, unless and until the establishment of the same has been approved by the secretary for aging and disability services. The governing board of all such nonprofit corporations shall report annually to the secretary for aging and disability services, in such form as may be required on the activities of the mental health center, or community facility for people with intellectual disability.

(b) If the board or boards of county commissioners desire to provide services for people with intellectual disability and to levy the tax authorized in K.S.A. 19-4004, and amendments thereto, for intellectual disability services, but determine that it is more practicable to transfer the proceeds from such tax levy or a portion thereof to a state agency operating a program established under the federal social security act whereby the funds will be eligible for federal financial participation in the purchase of services for eligible persons in facilities for people with intellectual disability, the board or boards are hereby authorized to transfer such proceeds, or a portion thereof, to any such state agency to purchase services in facilities for people with intellectual disability.
