Protecting Vulnerable Populations Through Background Checks
Welcome to the National Background Check Program (NBCP) Technical Assistance website, sponsored by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). This website is designed to assist U.S. States and Territories in establishing State programs for the purpose of conducting background checks on all prospective employees for direct-access positions with long-term care facilities and providers. This site is also available to the public for the purpose of providing information and education about the NBCP and grantee-State programs. Registered users from grantee States can access resources related to conducting background checks on direct-access employees and submit requests for technical assistance in the development of their own State-level programs. CNA maintains the list of approved users for this website and is contracted by CMS to provide technical assistance to grantee States. If you are a grantee-State registered user, please login above.
