SecureVideo offers several options to process payments for sessions. This support article goes over how to add an merchant button to your waiting room page. To set up an integration, you must have an account.


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.

<input type = "hidden" name = "LinkId" value ="521c2344-153e-177e-1753-2e41fa0a654b" />

<input type = "submit" value = "Payment" />



2. Copy the LinkID value only
