SecureVideo offers several options to process payments for sessions. Please see the support articles listed below for more information on enabling each.

 

Note: Collecting payments is an activity that is explicitly excluded from HIPAA mandates, according to an FAQ by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) about Business Associates, under the section "Other Situations in Which a Business Associate Contract Is NOT Required.":

  • When a financial institution processes consumer-conducted financial transactions by debit, credit, or other payment card, clears checks, initiates or processes electronic funds transfers, or conducts any other activity that directly facilitates or effects the transfer of funds for payment for health care or health plan premiums. When it conducts these activities, the financial institution is providing its normal banking or other financial transaction services to its customers; it is not performing a function or activity for, or on behalf of, the covered entity.

 

For the payment processor you use, you would limit your use of the payment service to only collecting payment, and not include any data that could count as protected health information (PHI), because otherwise, you would need a BAA from them.
