How do I pay my copay?
You will receive an email from OB/GYN of Indiana titled “Check-in online for your telemedicine appointment”. You will be asked to pay your copay with your debit/credit card if your insurance requires one. This payment will be required to start your session. If it is unknown if your plan requires a co-pay, the visit will be billed and a co-pay invoice will be sent to you after your virtual visit.
Are there privacy concerns I should be aware of regarding the use of Zoom for my appointment?
OB/GYN of Indiana takes the privacy of our patient data seriously. AxiaConnect uses the SecureVideo Telehealth platform which, through its unique integration with Zoom, acts as a HIPAA-complaint overlay and does not use Zoom to store any personal health information. Patients are scheduled inside the SecureVideo platform on the practice side, and a unique, random meeting is then generated in Zoom for the telehealth visit.
We are aware that regulators are inquiring into Zoom’s practices and trying to ensure they are secure, given the recent surge in overall usage of Zoom. We welcome regulatory oversight of the technology companies we partner with, as this only helps to ensure the safety and security of everyone’s data.
