In accordance with the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and implementing regulations, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) must conduct a fingerprint based background check on all individuals with a 5 percent or greater ownership interest in a provider or supplier that falls under the high risk category for purposes of enrollment screening. Accurate Biometrics has been contracted by CMS as the Fingerprint Based Background Check (FBBC) Contractor.
The following instructions will guide you through the fingerprint collection and submission procedure. If, at any time during this process you have a question, please call our customer service center at 1-866-361-9944 for assistance.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Please follow these instructions only if you have received a letter in the mail by your MAC (Medicare Administrative Contractor) provider.
The letter will confirm that your case has been initiated within our database, and that will allow us to process your fingerprint submission.
When a case is initiated in the database, we can verify if the applicant's case information has been entered correctly by CMS or if we need to edit information. Database information must match the data on the applicant's fingerprint cards or we cannot process your fingerprints.
