No installment payment of an assessment under this act shall be due and payable, however, until after:

(1) The hospital provider receives written notice from the department that the payment methodologies to hospitals required under this act have been approved by the centers for medicare and medicaid services of the United States department of health and human services under 42 C.F.R. § 433.68 for the assessment imposed by K.S.A. 2016 Supp. 65-6208, and amendments thereto, has been granted by the centers for medicare and medicaid services of the United States department of health and human services; and

(b) The department is authorized to establish delayed payment schedules for hospital providers that are unable to make installment payments when due under this section due to financial difficulties, as determined by the department.

(c) If a hospital provider fails to pay the full amount of an installment when due, including any extensions granted under this section, there shall be added to the assessment imposed by K.S.A. 2016 Supp. 65-6208, and amendments thereto, unless waived by the department for reasonable cause, a penalty assessment equal to the lesser of:

For purposes of subsection (c), payments will be credited first to unpaid installment amounts, rather than to penalty or interest amounts, beginning with the most delinquent installment.
