TEMPORARY TRANSITION TO ONLINE SERVICES
As a proactive measure in Strategic Psychological Services efforts to prevent the spread of Coronavirus Disease 19 (COVID-19) in our area and in light of recent government recommendations, we are temporarily transitioning to only offering telemental health appointments effective Wednesday, March 18, 2020. Telemental health is a subset of telehealth services that uses secure online video sessions to provide behavioral health services from a distance. We will continue monitoring recommendations from federal, local, and state officials and are committed to resuming in-person appointments as soon as it is safe and responsible to do so. Costs and Insurance Coverage: Session fees and copays are generally the same for telehealth sessions as they are for in-person appointments and coverage. At this time, it appears all insurance plans are moving to covering telehealth without many barriers, even if not initially a plan benefit. Please call your insurance provider for any plan specific concerns. We are happy to help with benefits checks as well if any questions arise. New information and updates are being released on an ongoing basis from insurance carriers and federal aid guidelines so we will let you know if we become aware of new benefits/aids for clients.. Logistics: Engaging in telehealth sessions is extremely simple and streamlined using our RegroupConnect platform. RegroupConnect is a program specially designed for healthcare providers and is powered by Zoom (a video conferencing company). You can access your appointment via the internet using a computer, tablet, or smartphone. Prior to your first session, you’ll need to download the Zoom Cloud Meetings app on the device(s) you wish to use. You will receive an email from RegroupConnect informing you of your scheduled session time/date and includes an individualized link that takes you directly to your video session. The only other thing you will need is a quiet, private location (home, parked car, etc.) for the session. We are so thankful for your flexibility and understanding during these unique times. Please reach out with any questions or concerns as we navigate this together.
Some of areas we work with:
Suicidal Thoughts and Self-Harm Behaviors
Problematic Sexual Issues
Anxiety and Depression

Emergency Personnel Services
Some of our clinicians are specially trained to offer services to individuals who are often responding to emergency situations such as EMTs, 911 operators, police, firefighters, hospital staff, correctional officers, and other emergency personnel. For emergency personnel, maintaining optimum mental well-being is critical for remaining effective on the job and at home. There are times when life/environmental stressors can interfere with functioning and relationships. Evidence-based interventions can help get you back on track in an understanding and confidential environment.
We offer online appointments to individuals across Nebraska who live outside of Lincoln or are unable to attend face-to-face sessions. Video sessions are conducted through a secure online video portal that is easy to use. No downloads, plug-ins, or installs are necessary and the portal can be used on any computer or mobile (iOS/Android) device with a camera and microphone. Teletherapy services are often covered at the same rates as in-person sessions through insurance, depending on your plan and insurance provider. We would be happy to aid in checking your benefits to let you know how this service is reimbursed by your plan.
Strategic Psychological Services is in-network with Blue Cross Blue Shield, Midlands Choice, Cigna, Aetna, Medica, and some other panels. Call to verify that your therapist accepts your insurance/plan. Out-of-network options may be available for partial or full reimbursement by your insurance carrier, depending on your plan. Give us a call at (402) 858-7774, email firstname.lastname@example.org or contact us to talk more.
Strategic Psychological Services provides an environment in which your ethnic or cultural customs, practices, and beliefs, gender, disability, and/or community differences will be respected and our practice is LGBTQI-affirming. Additionally, it is important that you understand as a prospective client that your confidentiality and discretion is taken very seriously at Strategic Psychological Services. Not only is confidentiality of counseling and therapy treatment protected under federal law, but we go above and beyond what is required to ensure your privacy is protected.
