Background Screening

Screening Information

All persons requiring to be screened must be eligible prior to being hired to work in a position that provides direct service.

It is required for all screenings to be initiated through the Clearinghouse website prior to sending an applicant to a Livescan Service Provider for fingerprinting. Initiating the screening through the Clearinghouse provides the ability to track a screening through the process, and receive email updates when an employee's status has been changed or updated.

The employee may not have direct contact with the vulnerable population until the screening process is completed and the employee is determined eligible. However, an employer may hire an employee/volunteer to a position that requires background screening before the employee completes the screening process for training and orientation purposes.

Level 2 screening records are confidential and may not be shared with anyone other than the individual that was screened. The employer should contact the person screened if delays exist.

To All Aging Network Providers

We recommend that you frequently review employee eligibility on the website. Daily updates to the website might change an individual's eligibility to work for a health care provider.
