Request a Zoom license to connect with patients (during the COVID-19 pandemic)
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Health Care Authority (HCA) has purchased a limited number of licenses for Zoom, a video conferencing technology that helps health care providers continue seeing patients without a physical encounter.
Zoom is an easy-to-use software which allows providers to host a virtual “meeting room” (i.e., a dedicated, provider specific URL) in which patients can enter and exit for their appointments. Please read HCA's statement about security in telehealth technology.
We will distribute this limited number of licenses free of charge to providers who have a meaningful need for this platform to support continuity of care, and don’t already have access to telehealth technology.
HCA will prioritize Zoom licenses for those providers who need them most, including those who:
- Serve a meaningful number of Medicaid clients.
- Do not already have other HIPAA or 42 CFR Part 2-compliant video capabilities.
- Are in smaller practices with less infrastructure.
- Serve children, adolescents, pregnant or parenting women or tribal members.
- Are primary care providers.
- Are licensed behavioral health professionals or paraprofessionals, including those who:
- Are opioid treatment programs.
- Prescribe or support prescribers of medications to people diagnosed with significant mental illness or substance use disorder.
- Serve as community mental health centers.
To request a Zoom license, please complete HCA's online application.
We will contact you with information and instructions if your application is accepted.
