If an individual being considered for employment by a regulated care provider described in 192.2495, RSMo reveals the existence of a GCW or reveals the existence of an otherwise disqualifying finding, it is the employer’s responsibility to verify whether a GCW is required, granted, or still valid. The employer will contact the licensing or regulatory agency if unsure whether a GCW is required.
The employer listed as a care provider in 192.2495, RSMo may verify the status of a pending/approved GCW by:
- Calling the FCSR toll-free access line at 1-866-422-6872 and asking to have a GCW verified. The employer will need to provide the individual’s full name and social security number in order to obtain verification of the waiver
- Checking: Has An Application Been Submitted? The employer will need to provide the individual’s full name and social security number in order to obtain the status of a waiver. The employer will click the Good Cause Waiver tab and Waiver Status from the drop-down menu and search the individual’s social security number to identify if a GCW has been submitted. If an application has been submitted, the employer will click the More Info button to provide the individual’s full name and the employer’s information.
