Idaho Code 20-225 authorizes payment for cost of supervision (COS). Any person under Idaho Department of Correction probation or parole supervision shall be required to contribute not more than seventy-five dollars ($75.00) per month as determined by the Board of Correction. IDOC currently assesses a monthly fee of sixty dollars ($60.00) per month. Cost-of-supervision fees offset some of the direct and indirect costs incurred by the Idaho Department of Correction to supervise probationers and parolees. This includes tests to determine drug and alcohol use, books and written materials to support rehabilitation efforts and monitoring physical location through the use of technology.
How to pay COS fees and Interstate Compact application fees
The Idaho Department of Correction has worked with Access Corrections to give clients new options for making their payments.
You can make a payment by:
- Using a kiosk in one of the seven Probation & Parole district offices (credit/debit card)
- Calling 1-866-345-1884 (credit/debit card)
- Logging on to accesscorrections.com (credit/debit card)
- Going in person to a walk-in site (cash, credit or debit)
- There is a service fee charged by Access Corrections at time of payment
There is also a $300 limit for debit/credit card payments if you owe $300 or more. If you want to make a payment above $300, or if you want to pay ahead on your COS, mail a cashier’s check or money order to the Secure Payments-Idaho DOC P & P address you see below.
IMPORTANT: When making a payment, or looking up your account with Access Corrections, you must add zeroes in front of the IDOC number so that it displays as seven digits. For example, if your IDOC # is 12345, you must enter 0012345. If your IDOC # is 123456, you must enter 0123456.

You can still send your payment by mail without paying a fee. Print and fill out the PAYMENTS form and mail in with your check/money order. You can also go to the Access Corrections web page, click "send money", select "Idaho" in the drop down, select "IDOC Secure Payments, Fees and Charges", click on the "PDF form" and fill out the form and mail with your check or money order to:

IMPORTANT: Do not send cash. You must note your name and IDOC # on the cashier's check or money order. When noting your IDOC #, you must add zeroes in front of the number so that it displays as seven digits. For example, if your IDOC # is 12345, you must write it as 0012345. If your IDOC # is 123456, you must write it as 0123456.
Client address changes
Monthly statements are mailed to clients. It is the client's responsibility to immediately notify their Probation & Parole officer of any changes to their physical and/or mailing address so the officer can update IDOC's system.
If you are on probation or parole, please contact your Probation & Parole officer for any questions relating to your COS balance. You may also contact the COS unit by calling 208-658-2000.
If you have questions regarding your payment, contact Access Corrections at 1-866-345-1884.
