The Florida Department of Children and Family Services is now required to conduct drug tests on all adult applicants to the state’s Temporary Assistance for Needy Families – Temporary Cash Assistance (TANF-TCA) program. ANY LAB TEST NOW® has been included in the list of approved private drug testing facilities. The drug-screening bill was signed into law effective July 1, 2011, and states that the cost of the testing is to be paid by the applicant. If the drug screening test is clean and the applicant qualifies for TANF-TCA, the fee for the screening (whether issued by ANY LAB TEST NOW or another state-approved private drug testing facility) will be reimbursed to the applicant by the state. To that end, the ANY LAB TEST NOW office staff will ensure that all the paperwork required for state reimbursement is complete and ready for submission.
