Process for background checks for providers

Background Checks for Providers

    • judymark

      In the Self-Determination Program, you only need to have background checks on personal care workers. But the participant can ask anyone else to get a check as well.

      The FMS actually handles the whole thing. Right now during COVID, the state has waived the requirement for fingerprinting but the FMS will run a check based on their ID. The results will be sent from the CA Dept of Justice.

      I hope that helps.

      Could you please explain the processes for background checks for providers when applying to become a service provider or vendor for a regional center?
