    (a) When a license holder, applicant, or other entity owns multiple programs or services that
are licensed by the Department of Human Services, Department of Health, or Department of
Corrections, only one background study is required for an individual who provides direct contact
services in one or more of the licensed programs or services if:
    (1) the license holder designates one individual with one address and telephone number as
the person to receive sensitive background study information for the multiple licensed programs
or services that depend on the same background study; and
    (2) the individual designated to receive the sensitive background study information is
capable of determining, upon request of the department, whether a background study subject is
providing direct contact services in one or more of the license holder's programs or services and,
if so, at which location or locations.
    (b) When a background study is being initiated by a licensed program or service or a foster
care provider that is also registered under chapter 144D, a study subject affiliated with multiple
licensed programs or services may attach to the background study form a cover letter indicating
the additional names of the programs or services, addresses, and background study identification
    When the commissioner receives a notice, the commissioner shall notify each program or
service identified by the background study subject of the study results.
    The background study notice the commissioner sends to the subsequent agencies shall satisfy
those programs' or services' responsibilities for initiating a background study on that individual.
