No, you cannot bypass this step. AxxessCARE uses Checkr to complete background checks that require your social security number. The background check must be completed before you can apply for a visit.
Checkr runs a criminal background check based on the requirements of each state on any clinician that signs up for AxxessCARE. Items being checked include:
The electronic signature to authorize your background check is your first and last name as entered in the Basic Information section in the AxxessCARE app profile.
AxxessCARE does not store your social security number, making it completely secure and safe. Your social security number is only used when processing your background check.
If your information is incorrect, your background check will be unsuccessful and you will be prompted to re-enter your social security number. Once entered, you will be unable to edit the number until prompted.
Background checks are completed between 24 and 48 hours. When your background check is complete, you will be prompted to complete your profile before applying for visits.
If it has been over 48 hours and your background check has not completed, Checkr may be waiting for additional information. Please check your email for further instructions from Checkr.
Once your background check is successful, you will need to complete your Profile information. Select any visit and then tap on Complete Profile to enter your personal information. This is where you will input your credentials, experience, competencies, languages, pay requirements, visit distance, and your own personal bio.
AxxessCARE does not require a drug test to apply for visits. However, every agency may have their own requirements for visit assignments.
