- AHCA Screening Process:
Providers send their employees, potential employees, or contractors to a
Advanced Screening LLC for fingerprinting. Once prints are
successfully submitted to FDLE, they will check the state criminal
history repository for records and the FBI will check national criminal
history systems for information. Allow 2-3 business days for FDLE/FBI
processing and submission of results to AHCA. Once complete, FDLE
electronically sends results to AHCA where data is brought into the AHCA
Background Screening Database (BGS Database). AHCA staff review the
results and determine if any “disqualifying criminal offenses” exist.
If the person has disqualifying offenses, he/she is recorded in the AHCA
Background Screening Database as “Not Eligible”, if no disqualifying
offenses exist they are recorded as “Eligible”. The results of the
screening are posted immediately to the Agency’s Background Screening
Results Website. Please allow 2-3 business days for AHCA processing.
Therefore, total processing time is generally 5-7 business days from the
date prints are submitted to FDLE. Level 2 screening records and
confidential and may not be shared with anyone other than the individual
that was screened.
If a criminal record is incomplete, AHCA will contact the
person screened through certified mail (based on the address submitted
to FDLE) for additional information, which will delay the processing of
the screening. The employer (AHCA provider/facility) should contact the
person screened if delays exist.
If fingerprints are rejected by FDLE/FBI, AHCA will send the
person screened a certified letter directing them to return to the same
vendor with a copy of the letter they received. The letter includes
their TCR number. This number lets the vendor know that the first set of
prints were rejected and to submit a second set of prints at no charge.
The vendor must allow the person to submit a second set of fingerprints
to FDLE at no additional cost. If the certified letter is not signed for
after 30 days, a second letter will be sent out by regular mail.
