(b) There is a rebuttable presumption that an individual with a disability shall be eligible for reinstatement to the level of home and community based services or other medicaid program services such person was entitled to on the day preceding the day such person stopped receiving home and community based services or other medicaid program services if:

(1) Such individual had received home and community based services or other medicaid program services pursuant to an application filed with the Kansas department for aging and disability services, and entitlement to receive or receipt of home and community based services or other medicaid program services terminated due to employment for a certified business, not medical recovery or any other reason; and

Upon reinstatement to the medicaid program to receive home and community based services or other medicaid program services, such individual shall receive services and not wait to receive services under such program.

(c) The secretary may promulgate rules and regulations as necessary to effectuate the purpose of this section.
