A county is obligated under South Dakota law to cover emergency hospital care for qualifying individuals according to SDCL chapter 28-13.  It is also obligated to provide burial assistance to county residents who die in a state of indigence or who are otherwise qualified under SDCL 28-17.

Other economic assistance is determined by county guidelines set forth by the Marshall County Welfare Policies guidelines.
