Ada County partnered with Access Idaho to offer the new service
Ada County Indigent Services customers can now pay their orders of reimbursements using a credit or debit card.
“Customers don’t like having to leave and come back with cash or a check,” said LaBerta Jones, Ada County Indigent Services budget and finance officer. “It can be a big inconvenience. Now customers can make their reimbursement payments on time without any hassles.”
Payments can be made over the counter at the Ada County Courthouse in Boise at 252 East Front Street, Suite 199. Indigent Services accepts credit or debit cards displaying a Visa or MasterCard logo. Customers will soon have the ability to pay online, schedule recurring payments and sign up for payment reminders.
More than 160 county departments in the Gem State use Access Idaho’s payment processing service. In addition to payment processing, Access Idaho manages the state’s official Web portal, idaho.gov, and specializes solely in electronic government applications for Idaho. The partnership operates under a self-funded model, in which no tax dollars or county funds were used to develop and maintain the service.
Access Idaho is a Boise-based company and a wholly owned subsidiary of digital government firm NIC (Nasdaq: EGOV).
