The Idaho Crime Victims Compensation Program was established in 1986 to provide assistance to innocent victims of crime for financial losses associated with a crime when other resources are not available to cover those expenses.
The program believes that offenders should be held accountable for costs associated with their criminal activity, and actively pursues restitution for crime-related costs.
Idaho Crime Victims Compensation Program Adult Sexual Assault Forensic Examinations Change effective 7/1/2018
This change applies to sexual assault forensic examinations for adults only (age 18+)
Effective July 1, 2018, under Idaho Code § 72-1019(2), an adult victim’s private insurance should not be billed for a sexual assault forensic examination. The Idaho Crime Victims Compensation Program (CVCP) will pay for those examinations without requiring private insurance to be billed. This statutory change applies to dates of service on or after July 1, 2018.
Payments by all federal or federally-financed third parties (e.g. Medicaid, Medicare) shall continue to be required prior to CVCP payment.
This change applies only to adult (age 18+) examinations. Sexual assault forensic examinations for child victims will continue to require payment by both private insurance and federal programs, when applicable.
