Criminal Record Check Program Information and Forms

Effective July 1, 2018

Senate Substitute for Senate Substitute for House Bill 2386 (originally HB 2427) passed this legislative session and will become effective 7/1/2018.  The bill made changes to the criminal record check laws for Adult Care Homes (K.S.A. 39-970), Home Health Agencies (K.S.A. 65-5117) and HCBS (K.S.A. 39-2009). 

  • New Prohibited Offense List is now identical for Adult Care Homes, Home Health Agencies and HCBS Providers. There are some new offenses while some previously prohibited offenses have been removed.
  • HCBS Providers will see that some prohibiting offenses are now only prohibited for six years.
  • Waivers may be requested for certain offenses after five years have passed since completion of all court imposed conditions.
  • Exceptions will no longer be granted for HCBS because of the Waiver option above.
  • Adult Care Homes and Home Health Agencies will no longer receive criminal history record information with clearance letters for those individuals who do not have prohibiting offenses. Instead, the clearance letters will be available online from the facility’s employee listing by selecting ‘View Results'. Facilities will continue to sometimes see the message that information at the Central Repository requires KDADS review. Staff will review the information, then, if cleared, the clearance letter will be made available online. If prohibited, a letter will be mailed to the facility.
  • Letters advising of employment prohibitions will continue to be mailed to Adult Care Homes, Home Health Agencies and HCBS Providers.
  • Individuals with pending arrests/charges/court hearings related to offenses that would be prohibited if convicted will be responsible for providing the court documentation regarding the outcomes.  Facilities will be notified by letter and asked to share the letter with the candidate as KDADS may not have the individual’s current mailing address.
