Covered California Live Scans
All employees & volunteers with Covered California will be required to take their Live Scan Fingerprinting.
What is Live Scan?
Live Scan is an inkless fingerprinting process that electronically transmits fingerprint records to the California Department of Justice in a matter of seconds.
Live Scan technology replaces the process of recording fingerprints using messy ink, and shortens the process of background clearances to a matter of days instead of weeks or months.
Prints submitted through the Live Scan process allows the DOJ to coordinate any additional processing that is necessary such as forwarding the prints to the FBI.
How does the process work?
What if I have already been Live Scanned or fingerprinted for another organization?
What do I need to bring?
To be Live Scan fingerprinted you will need to provide a completed Request for Live Scan form for your specific need and a current valid photo ID.
Examples of acceptable identification are:
- California Driver’s License
- California DMV identification Card
- Valid out-of-state Driver’s License
- Military ID
- Resident Alien Card
- Immigration Card
- Green Card
How long will it take for my results?
You, your employer, or organization should receive your Live Scan Results within 7 to 10 days. MR Fingerprints is not responsible for the result of your Live Scan submission.
Therefore please allow a minimum of seven days before making a status inquiry. Applicants should check first with the agency that requested the background review since the Department of Justice sends results directly to the applicant agency.
We offer fast and 100% accurate live scan services, both Mobile Live Scan and at our downtown LA office location. MR Fingerprints is Certified by California Department of Justice (DOJ) and by the Federal bureau of Investigation (FBI).
