Department of Health

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

  1. Go to the Florida Department of Health website to obtain an ORI number and your Electronic Fingerprint Form: http://www.floridahealth.gov/licensing-and-regulation/index.html

  2. Bring in your Electronic Fingerprint Form with the ORI number 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 fingerprint 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 the Florida Department of Health Clearinghouse. Once the results are received from FDLE, the average processing time for clearance is approximately 3-5 business days.
