Serving Ada, Boise, Elmore, and Valley Counties



Change of Services to Minors

BOISE, June 27, 2024 – As of July 1, 2024, as per Idaho’s Senate Bill 1329, except as otherwise provided by court order, parental consent to receive health care services is required for those under 18 years of age. Central District Health can’t provide health care services to a minor child without obtaining the prior consent of the minor child’s parent or legal guardian.

Parental involvement during a minor’s appointment is encouraged, as parents can be a positive influence on a teen’s health and well-being. If no parent is able to join the minor, parental consent is necessary for those under 18 years of age.
