Notice Liens And Reimbursement
Please be advised that pursuant to Idaho law:
If you or a 3rd party submit an application for assistance with your medical bills, Kootenai County will place a lien
on your REAL and PERSONAL property; and
If you or a 3rd party submit an application for medical bills or for non-medical assistance, Kootenai County will
require that you reimburse the county for funds expended on your behalf.
If you are ordered to reimburse the county in an amount less than the actual cost of medical bills paid by Kootenai County,
all liens will remain active until Kootenai County and the Catastrophic Health Care Program have been paid back the full amount
that has been expended on the applicant's behalf.
Using taxpayer funds, Kootenai County pays out more than $5 million annually
to assist county residents who are in need. These funds are provided through property taxation and the Board of County Commissioners
believes that where possible, these funds should be recovered so that others who are in need can be helped. Reimbursement also
reduces the need to increase taxes for this purpose.
