Follow these simple steps to complete your Level 2 fingerprint background check requirement

  1. The company that is requesting your Level 2 background check has to go on the Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA/AHCA Medicaid) Clearinghouse web Portal and generate a Level 2 background check request.

    After they have registered you into the AHCA Clearinghouse portal they must provide you with a Live Scan Request Form that the system automatically generates with an ORI number and a Screening ID number.

  2. Bring in your Live Scan Request Form along with your current (not expired) driver’s license, government issued identification card, or passport to Accurate Biometrics at 5005 W. Laurel Street, Ste. 111, Tampa. Please call us at (813) 586-3400 if you have any questions.

  3. The fingerprints and photo are captured by Accurate Biometrics then sent to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE). FDLE then sends the fingerprints to the FBI for their nationwide processing. The results are then disseminated back to AHCA/AHCA Medicaid Clearinghouse.
    Once the results are received from FDLE, the average processing time for clearance is approximately 3-5 business days.

  4. Accurate Biometrics will provide you with a Transaction Control Number (TCN) report that verifies your live scan submission has been processed. The TCN number can be given to the company that is requesting the background check as it will help them track results.
