IDAHO HEALTH PLANNING ACT
39-4901. Purpose and policy. It is the intent of the legislature to provide to all of Idaho residents a quality health care system for a reasonable cost and to prevent the deterioration of such system by the duplication of services or the introduction of new categories of services that are not necessary to their health. It is further the intent of the legislature to promote cooperation among health care providers in health planning activities and to provide access to necessary care for all who require it. It is hereby declared that it is in the public interest of the state, to provide for the relief from penalties of state and federal law, cooperative planning in health care that is likely to benefit the residents of the state.
