What It Is
The Kentucky Level of Care System (KLOCS) is an electronic system which streamlines and automates the current level-of-care paper process. KLOCS generates user tasks and notifications to enable all stakeholders to interact electronically in level-of-care application, review and approval processes.
Starting Aug. 3, 2020, all nursing facility providers, institutionalized hospice service providers and ICF/IID providers are required to use KLOCS. Please Note: KLOCS does not impact ancillary services and non-institutionalized hospice providers. Those processes remain the same.
The following changes take effect Aug. 3, 2020:
- Applications will be submitted and tracked using an online self-service portal.
- Level-of-care requests and discharges will be initiated electronically. This process automatically routes requests to the appropriate KLOCS personnel for review and completion of determinations.
- Providers will receive automatic task notifications and reminders to submit requested information
