The Bureau of Facility Standards, in cooperation with the Centers for Medicare/Medicaid Services (CMS) and the Department of Health and Welfare, serves and protects Idahoans requiring health-related services, supports, and supervision in care facilities by:
Promoting each individual's rights, well-being, safety, dignity, and highest level of functional independence;
Enforcing compliance with state rules and federal regulations; and
Providing information and education.
We license and certify health care providers/suppliers following state and federal regulatory requirements, as applicable. We also conduct complaint investigations relating to these providers/suppliers.
