Number of changes to background screening requirements (Senate Bill CS/SB 1992, Vetoed by Governor on 06/23/2011)
Section 465.022, Florida Statutes requires the pharmacy permit applicant to submit fingerprints as outlined below.
An application for a pharmacy permit must include a set of fingerprints from each person having an ownership interest of 5 percent or greater and from any person who, directly or indirectly, manages, oversees, or controls the operation of the applicant, including officers and members of the board of directors of an applicant that is a corporation.
For corporations having more than $100 million of business taxable assets in this state, in lieu of these fingerprint requirements, the department shall require the prescription department manager or consultant pharmacist of record who will be directly involved in the management and operation of the pharmacy to submit a set of fingerprints.
A representative of a corporation described above satisfies the requirement to submit a set of his or her fingerprints if the fingerprints are on file with the department or the Agency for Health Care Administration, and are available to the department. If your corporation is exempt only the prints of the prescription department manager is required. If the prescription department manager prints are on file with DOH or AHCA and they were submitted after January 1, 2011 they will not have to be resubmitted. The manager must provide proof of them being on file.
