Specifically, MED is providing modified licensing services, outlined on our Licensing webpage. Other than these adjustments to our licensing processes, it is business as usual at MED.
If fingerprints are required for your application submission please use one of the two Colorado approved fingerprint providers below. Both vendors have limited sites open for fingerprint services. This map shows where IdentoGo and American BioIdentity locations are located and designates whether the site is opened or closed. Sites highlighted in green are still providing service, and those highlighted in yellow have temporarily suspended services due to COVID-19. The location map is updated continuously with open and closed location information.
When you choose the third-party vendor you wish to use, please be sure to select the correct fingerprint type (you will pay between $49.50-$52 which includes a $10 rolling fee) if you live in the State of Colorado. Do not choose an option that looks less expensive, as we will not get the fingerprint results, you will be required to mail your hard card to our office which will significantly delay the processing of your application by weeks. Do not choose the out-of-state option unless you truly live out-of-state, as this is more expensive.
