Photo Capture for Submission to the Clearinghouse
Dr’s Choice First has the most up to date software and technology for AHCA and DOH screenings which include your photograph and will be automatically submitted to the Care Provider Background Screening Clearinghouse.
FDLE Approved LiveScan Service Provider
This year Dr’s Choice First became a certified FDLE LiveScan service provider which includes Level 2 background checks. The FDLE website has a list of all agencies who are authorized to receive background checks as well as the Florida statues. Dr’s Choice First is prepared to assist employers who need to have any number employees fingerprinted for their background checks.
How it Works:
Typically the employer or agency will begin the process of your background check. An employer will collect your demographic information and contact a LiveScan service provider. You should be given an ORI# (Originating Agency Identifier) which tells us the agency requesting the background check and the reason why as well as an OCA# (AHCA and DOH only) which indicates where the results should be sent. Once you get your ORI and OCA numbers you can make an appointment to get your fingerprints scanned or simply walk in to our Jacksonville office location. If you are applying for a license through the Florida Department of Health your ORI number can be found within the application instructions. If you need assistance with any part of this process please feel free to contact our office at (904) 800-2375.
What to Expect:
Once your fingerprints are scanned they are submitted electronically to FDLE. For Level 2 background checks FDLE will run a criminal history background check to determine if you’ve ever been arrested or convicted of a crime in the state of Florida as well as a national check through the FBI. FDLE should have the results available within 3 business days and will notify the employer. Dr’s Choice First will never receive your results.
For more detailed information on what information is collected and released during a background check please refer to the FDLE website.
Employers and Agencies:
Dr’s Choice First invites your current employees, contractors and potential new hires to make an appointment online, over the phone or to walk in without an appointment. Our Jacksonville office can accommodate a group of employees even on the weekends. To take advantage of our mobile service please call to make arrangements. For your convenience we can provide pre-employment drug testing while they are here for their fingerprint scan.
