Reminder to Instructors:
Recently, there has been an increase in duplicate Level One Medication Aide and Insulin certifications. It is VERY important that you CALL the health education unit with the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services to verify if a person in your class is NOT already certified. 573-526-5686, press “0” to speak with a representative within the unit.
Please Note: The DHSS Online Registry Search will ONLY reveal those who are recently Level One Medication Aid certified or who were previously certified and have completed the required L1MA Biennial Update. These will show an ACTIVE status. Anyone who has an active Insulin Administration certification will also be on this online search.
You must check if a student is previously Level 1 Medication Aide or Insulin certified by calling the Department of Health and Senior Services, Health Education Unit at 573-526-5686.
If you search the online registry and no information is found for a person, this DOES NOT MEAN THAT THEY MAY NOT HAVE ALREADY BEEN CERTIFIED IN THE PAST. Call the Health Education Unit at the number above.
HOWEVER, if your search reveals that a person has an Insulin certification with an INACTIVE status and the Level One Medication Aide Certification is not listed, this means they have been Level One Medication Aide certified, but have not completed the required Biennial update training.
Therefore, their Level One Medication Aide certification and Insulin are both INACTIVE and they are not allowed to pass medications or administer insulin until the update is completed. Once the Biennial Update information is received by the Department of Health and Senior Services; both certifications will appear on the online search page and have an ACTIVE status. If the biennial update has been completed and you do not see this update on the registry, call the Health Education Unit at 573-526-5686 immediately to have this person reactivated.
