KDOC Families and Friends

  1. To communicate with your loved one through their tablet account, create and fund a ViaPath Technologies (formerly GTL) account. Please https://www.gettingout.com/kansas-doc/ or download the app on your smartphone to create an account. (See below for “Setting Up Your Account.”)
  2. Once you deposit funds ($10.00 minimum required) on your account, you will be able to send messages, photos or a 30-second video message to your loved one. The cost will be deducted from your ViaPath account. The rates for these services remain unchanged from JPay.
  3. In addition, you will have the ability to add funds to your loved one’s tablet account electronically. There is no fee to add funds through ViaPath.
