If gotten by email, login, click on APPLICATION, fill the application, print out your Medication Aide Renewal Voucher and send your money order to the state with the printed voucher.

– Effective August 1, 2021, a medication aide who applies to renew his/her permit must submit fingerprints and have his/her criminal background approved by HHSC prior to approval of the renewal. The criminal history check will be FBI-based and include nationwide criminal history information.
You will be notified of the fingerprinting requirement via email or mail. If you attempt to renew prior your renewal month, the renewal will not be processed until fingerprinting is completed. You MUST schedule an appointment with one of these centers to submit your finger prints(Use 11JH9Z as service code). A medication aide is responsible for paying the cost ($38.25)of the fingerprint-based criminal history check.
HHSC will receive your fingerprints through a secure website within 24-48 business hours after submission. HHSC staff will review your criminal history and provide a criminal evaluation letter within 10 business days after receiving your results. Come with this letter to the school to register for the 7 Hrs CEU.
If the medication aide remains active on the medication aide registry, fingerprinting is a one-time requirement and cost.
A medication aide who is active on the medication aide TULIP registry will be notified via mail of the fingerprinting requirement prior to his/her renewal month. If a medication aide attempts to renew prior to his/her renewal month, HHSC will notify the aide of the fingerprinting requirement.
