Help Center / What happens if my photograph is not taken at time of fingerprinting?

Because the Florida Department of Health retains fingerprints on any applicant who is required to undergo a criminal history screening starting January 1, 2013, those prints are retained in the Care Provider Clearinghouse.

This Clearinghouse allows for the sharing of criminal history information among specified agencies. One of the requirements for the Clearinghouse is a photograph taken at time of fingerprinting.

If your fingerprints are submitted without a photograph, you may have to undergo additional fingerprinting in the future.
