PAYMENT OF APPROVED BILLS
According to Idaho law, if your doctor, hospital or other provider wants Ada County to pay your bills, we must receive originals of all bills and claims within sixty (60) days of the county’s approval of your claim. It is the applicant’s responsibility to ensure that all providers submit their bills to Ada County in a timely manner or those bills will not be paid.
When the county pays medical bills on your behalf, you should know that the law requires that we pay the established Medicaid rate for all services. This amount is substantially less than the amount billed by the provider. State law requires all providers to accept payment from the county as payment in full and providers paid by the county are not allowed to try and collect the balance from you.
