MED Third-Party Fingerprint Service

Due to a statutory mandate, the Colorado Bureau of Investigations (CBI) has modified its fingerprinting process and will no longer accept hard copy fingerprint cards for MED licensing background checks - this will only affect you if you are not planning to come to a MED office to have your fingerprints taken. 

If you plan to submit your fingerprints via a third-party vendor, you may only do so using the CBI approved vendor: IdentoGO.  

If you have already had your fingerprints taken at a third-party vendor using a hard copy fingerprint card, please have them delivered or mailed to our Lakewood office immediately – 1707 Cole Blvd. Suite 300, Lakewood, CO 80401, please include the appropriate MED application form with your fingerprint packet.

If you choose to submit digital scans of your fingerprints via IdentoGo:

  • You will be required to submit a$49.50 processing fee; $39.50 actual cost fee and a $10.00 service fee, 
  • You will be able to choose a location and make an appointment to have your fingerprints scanned at one of the IdentoGO sites across the county, 
  • You will receive a receipt from IdentoGo which you must include in your application packet, and
  • You may subtract $39.50 from your application fee as you will have already paid the cost of the background check to CBI via IdentoGO

Keep in mind that you can have your fingerprints taken at any of our MED offices with no additional $10.00 processing fee.
