Welcome to Boise County Indigent Services -
This department can
help residents of Boise County with the payment of medical and some non-medical
expenses. Assistance from Boise County must be a “last resort” and is available
only when no other alternative exists and it does not supplement any other type
of assistance. All counties in Idaho, including Boise County, require repayment
of any taxpayer funds used to assist a county resident under Idaho law.
Before any assistance can be provided, a strict application and investigative
process must be performed. Applicants must meet certain requirements, present
for an interview with the Deputy Clerk and be prepared to provide personal
information regarding the living situation, income, assets of all types,
insurance, resources, expenses and much more. A thorough investigation will be
conducted by the Deputy Clerk and presented to the Board of County Commissioners
for a decision.
An automatic lien is also created on all real and personal property for those
who file an application for county medical assistance under these laws. If an
applicant files an application for assistance and withholds or gives false or
incomplete information in order to gain assistance from Boise County that
he/she is not entitled to, that person could be found guilty of a misdemeanor.
Requests for medical assistance require a different application than requests
for non-medical assistance. All medical providers and hospitals in the state
have the necessary application forms for requests for medical assistance. Only the
application forms provided by state law may be utilized, no other form of
application will be accepted. Non-medical assistance applications are available
to download and print here.
