The Idaho Public Records Law Manual by the Idaho Legislature states that “all records maintained by state and local
government entities be available for public access and copying.” At the same time, the Legislature recognizes the
need to balance the policy of openness against the equally important need for privacy of certain information provided
by citizens and businesses that is necessary for the government's business. This balance is contained in Idaho Code
§§74-101 to 74-126,
which states that "all public records in Idaho are open at all reasonable times for inspection except as otherwise
expressly provided by statute.
To search the public insurance company forms and rate filings electronically, please utilize
SERFF Filing Access. Any other formal public
records requests should be submitted in writing either by utilizing the online form.
The normal response time is within three working days from the time the request is received. If the request cannot be
filled within three working days, the Department will extend it to ten working days from date of receipt. The requester
will be notified if this is the case.
If the public records request requires more than two hours of labor or more than 100 pages to be printed, the Department
may request pre-payment of costs before the request is completed. Costs are based on the work involved.
