Text Search

Enter the text to search for and click Search to get a list of statutes containing the text you entered. Tips:
  • Multiple words will be searched as a phrase. Entering Property Tax will return statutes that contain the complete phrase Property Tax.
  • Logical Operators are allowed. Hunting and Fishing will return statutes that containing both hunting and fishing. Hunting or Fishing will return statutes that contain hunting, fishing, or both.
  • Wild cards(*) are allowed. Entering Approp* will return statutes that contain Appropriation, Appropriate, Appropriated, etc..
  • Punctuation can also be used as operators. + = and, , = or. Searching for phrases that have , and will result in error unless you enclose the entire phrase in quotes.
The Filter option allows you to narrow your search results to a specific Title or Chapter. Here is a tip for using the filter option.
  • Use a dash (-) as the last character of your filter to refine searches. For example the filter "1-1" returns sections in 1-1, 1-10, 1-11, 1-12, etc. The filter "1-1-" returns only sections in Chapter 1-1.

22-22-26.2Coordination of payment of cost of forensic medical examinations--Notice to victim--Victim not required to participate.

Each physician, hospital, and clinic conducting an examination under § 22-22-26 shall coordinate with the county to establish a payment process by which the county shall pay for the cost of any forensic medical examination performed under § 22-22-26 and to notify any victim of rape or sexual offense of the availability of a forensic medical examination at no cost to the victim. A victim of rape or sexual offense is not required to participate in the criminal justice system or to cooperate with law enforcement to be provided with a forensic medical examination without cost to the victim.

The amount paid to a physician, hospital, or clinic for a forensic medical exam performed under § 22-22-26 may not exceed the actual cost of the forensic medical examination or an amount established by the secretary of the Department of Social Services, whichever is less. The amount established by the secretary under this section shall be based on Medicaid payment methodology. A physician, hospital, or clinic may not maintain a claim against a county for any amount that exceeds the usual ordinary and reasonable charge for a forensic medical examination, including an amount that is less than the actual cost of the forensic medical examination. If the physician, hospital, or clinic performs forensic medical examinations, or any portion of a forensic medical examination, to persons who are medically indigent residing in the county in which the physician, hospital, or clinic is located at a cost less than the amount provided for in this section, the physician, hospital, or clinic shall furnish the forensic medical examination, or any applicable portion of the forensic medical examination, at the lower cost.
