3rd R Reading (House)
Electroconvulsive treatment, age
HEALTH – Amends existing law to establish provisions for electroconvulsive treatment for children.

RS31216 / S1354

Idaho law currently allows for electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) for adults through informed consent to treatment and for children with a court order. ECT has been demonstrated to be effective in treating severe depression and other psychological disorders that are resistant to pharmaceutical treatment and other interventions. This legislation sets a minimum age of twelve (12) years old for ECT and provides parents with the ability to provide informed consent to treatment.

Medicaid does not cover ECT for children, so there is no impact to the General Fund.
