How To Check In For Your Video Visit

Video Visits: Telehealth

We are now able to use telehealth via doxy.me instead of an office visit. Please read this entire page before your appointment.

Call to Schedule: 913-661-9980

Telehealth visits can only be utilized for patients who are:

  • physically in Kansas at the time of the visit due to licensing law
  • patients who have been seen within the past 3 years

IMPORTANT – Before the call: Please check to be sure your camera/mic/speaker is enabled well before the call using this pre-call test linked below. You must have your camera, mic, and speakers enabled to participate in this call.

Billing and Insurance

We will bill your insurance as a telehealth visit. Most insurance companies cover this cost as a typical office visit. It is your responsibility to verify that telemedicine is a covered benefit under your plan. Self-insured plans may exclude this benefit.

All standard copays and fees contracted with your insurance company apply and you will be billed according to current practice policies.

Per industry standards there will be an additional charge for telemedicine visits that take place on Federal holidays, weekends, and after 5pm on weekdays.

If you have new insurance or payment card information, please email cboline@marckc.com prior to your telemedicine visit. DO NOT send specific card numbers or personal details in this message due to the risk of identity theft.

At the Appointment Time

At the time of your appointment you can log into the appropriate “waiting room.” The individual “waiting room” URLs are listed below the teal instruction box, but you must schedule your appointment with our Front Desk girls prior to visiting the site or we will not know you are there.

Once you are logged in, please wait for us to log in as well. It can be difficult to know an exact time we will be available during a typical office day, but we will be with you as soon as possible. We may still be with another patient when you first log in, much like in the office. The benefits to you are that you can work on things at home near your computer while you wait and you don’t spend time driving to and from our office.

Common Questions

Is this secure?

We take security seriously. We have chosen to use Doxy.me, which complies with HIPAA and HITECH requirements. Doxy.me uses state of the art security and encryption protocols to assure that data integrity and privacy is maintained. No recording is made of the visit. It will be documented in the patient chart like any other visit.

Does insurance cover the cost?

The state of Kansas passed its telemedicine parity law on May 12, 2018. The law requires private payers to cover telehealth services. Self-insured plans may opt out of this benefit.

Why can we not use the service if we’re not in Kansas?

Our physicians and nurse practitioners are licensed to practice in the state of Kansas. The location of the patient is what counts legally, so we are limited to seeing patients who are currently in Kansas.

Why does the video sometimes freeze and what can we do when it happens?

The encrypted video and audio use a lot of bandwidth, so sometimes the video freezes. For this reason, we recommend having a phone nearby to use to continue the conversation while the video reloads. There is also a chat box that can be used to communicate by text if there are complications using the audio and video. (This texting alone does NOT meet criteria for the telehealth visit. We must be able to have audio and visual communication to meet criteria.)
