48-225.Pay and allowances; health insurance, reimbursement of costs, when; active state service in nonemergency situation; active duty; details. (a) When an officer or enlisted person of the Kansas national guard is ordered by the governor to perform active state service, such person shall receive from the state, pay and allowances as may be authorized by the adjutant general at the rate now or hereafter paid or allowed by law to officers and enlisted persons of the same rank and length of service in the armed forces of the United States. The minimum amount of such pay and allowances shall not be less than the amount received by an individual in the pay grade of E-6 with six years of military service credited for pay purposes. During any period or consecutive periods of state active duty in excess of 30 days, an officer or enlisted member of Kansas national guard shall be entitled to reimbursement of the officer's or member's cost of privately-purchased or employer-provided health insurance for such officer or member and such officer's or member's family when the policy of insurance was in force prior to such officer or member being ordered to perform active state service. Such reimbursement shall not exceed the amount paid for premiums for individual or family health insurance coverage under the state employees group health insurance plan. The reimbursement shall be treated as an allowance and paid by the state and shall be considered as a cost of state active duty. If any part of the compensation of such persons for the above service is paid by the United States, then there shall be paid from state funds, only that part thereof not paid by the United States.

(b) The governor shall have authority to detail any member of the governor's staff or any other officer or enlisted person of the Kansas national guard upon any tour of military duty or to attend any military or civil ceremony, within or without the state, as the governor may deem for the best interest of the service.
