AHCA & Medicaid
Amendments to the Florida law, effective from August 1st, 2010, changed the background screening and hiring process for service providers regulated and licensed by the AHCA. See “AHCA Providers required to be Screened”. At early stages of law implementation, IDENTICO pioneered “No Appointment is Required” office schedule, so applicants can visit us during regular business hours, be served efficiently, pay at the delivery and start their employment in 24-48 hours, as soon as screening results are available on AHCA Background Screening Results Website.
In early 2011, our successful operations were amended with high demand Mobile Fingerprinting Services. It permitted us to provide Electronic Fingerprinting and Level 2 Background Screening services to companies and individuals throughout Broward, Miami and Palm Beach Counties. We implemented policies under which travel fees are waived if group consists of more than 10 applicants at single location. Relatively smaller groups are served reasonable with travel fees being at $30-$50/ location price range.

Since January 2011, we electronically fingerprinted more than 5,000 applicants on-site. Among them, reputable nursing homes, assisted living facilities, hospitals, municipalities, private clinics and Medicaid Providers required to undergo re-enrollment screening. Our rate of first set rejection due to poor quality of Applicant’s fingerprints is lower than 5%. All technicians are trained and well qualified to conduct screening process with respect, professionalism and confidentiality to applicant’s personal information. Our Live Scan Fingerprinting units are regularly calibrated in order for our fingerprinting technicians to obtain best quality fingerprints possible from each applicant.
