When Senate Substitute for Senate Substitute for House Bill 2386 (originally HB 2427) passed in the 2018 session it amended the criminal record check statutes for Adult Care Homes (K.S.A. 39-970), Home Health Agencies (K.S.A. 65-5117) and HCBS (K.S.A. 39-2009). 

Much of the amendments became effective July 1, 2018 and have been implemented.  However, the national fingerprint-based criminal record check was not implemented at that time.  Implementation will begin in 2020 and go through 2021. The online portal built for that purpose is called KanCheck.

WHAT WILL HAPPEN NEXT

Kansas Department for Aging and Disability Services (KDADS) is working with a group of volunteer facilities to conduct a Mini Pilot of KanCheck in late December/early January 2020. Implementation of Adult Care Homes and Homes Health Agencies will follow based on County locations. HCBS providers will be implemented in 2021. 

While most law enforcement agencies have the capability for electronic fingerprint submission to the KBI for Criminal purposes most must make updates to their systems to allow for submission of electronic fingerprints for Civil purposes. As agencies gain the capability those counties will be implemented.  Below is an estimated timeline for implementation*.

The Criminal Record Check portion of the Health Occupations Credentialing Website will begin change incorporating the KanCheck portal while maintaining the current portal for those facilities that are not being implemented yet. More detailed information will follow as will User Guides and a FAQ.
