Resources for Background Checks


On Nov 1, 2015, the South Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (SCDHHS) strengthened the criminal background check portion of the Rehabilitative Behavioral Health Services (RBHS) manual. Below are resources for providers to use to conduct background checks.

  • National Sex Offender Website: The Dru Sjodin National Sex Offender Public website provides free access to sex offender data nationwide and includes a "no hits" page for individuals, as applicable.
  • CATCH: The South Carolina Law Enforcement Division (SLED) provides an online name-based search for South Carolina criminal records. This service also includes a "no hits" page for individuals, as applicable. There is a fee associated with this service.

For criminal background (non-sex crimes) checks outside of South Carolina, please contact those states individually regarding their available resources.

Thank you for your continued support of the South Carolina Healthy Connections Medicaid program.
