Fingerprint-Based Criminal Background Check Process Update

August 31, 2023

The Fingerprint-Based Criminal Background Check (FCBC) process has been corrected. On August 23, 2023, AHCCCS sent letters to high-risk providers with pending enrollment applications with instructions for them to complete the FCBC for 5% or more owners. Executive Directors, Chief Executive Officers, and statutory agents of high-risk non-profit organizations must also complete the FCBC. The fingerprinting for these providers should be completed no later than September 23, 2023, or enrollment may be delayed or denied.

Fingerprint-Based Criminal Background Check Process Changing

July 13, 2023

AHCCCS recently sent letters to applying high-risk providers requesting that owners of five percent or more complete their Fingerprint-Based Criminal Background Check (FCBC) within thirty days of the date on the letter.

The instructions on the letter for completing the FCBC are no longer correct. AHCCCS is aware of the issue and is actively working on a solution. Providers are asked not to call Provider Services or Fieldprint regarding the issue.
