Accepts All Insurances

Because we are independent and locally owned, Choice Therapy accepts all insurance companies. Your health insurance provider usually covers physical, occupational and speech therapy services. Several insurance plans have either a deductible or copay. It is best to check with your insurance provider regarding coverage and limitations to rehab services. Some insurance companies do require a referral to qualify for their particular insurance plan. It is best to check with your insurance provider to see if a referral is required. Another option is to pay for therapy services privately, including same day pay and credit card payments, which will not require a physician referral. We have several payment options available and we can assist you with contacting your insurance or other payment options.

Caring Team Members

We love what we do and it shows. Whether you see us for physical, occupational or speech therapy, rest assured that our team treats our patients with personal, caring and dedicated customer service. Many of our team members have been here since we opened our doors 10 years ago.

Close Convenient Parking

No parking across a parking lot the size of a football field. All seven of our Choice Therapy locations offer convenient parking close to our front door.

Direct Access

Refers to physical therapy and the ability of patients to be evaluated and treated by a physical therapist without being referred by a doctor or other healthcare practitioner. If you feel you have a problem that may benefit from the skilled services of a physical therapist, you may be able to refer yourself to physical therapy for treatment.

What this means for our patients: If you have an injury or an increase in pain and your health plan provides direct access, you can be evaluated and treated by a physical therapist for up to 60 days without a physician’s referral.  It is an easy process that can begin with a 15 minute free screen to promptly assess if therapy is required and or a quick call to the phone number provided on the back of your insurance card to determine if your health plan accepts direct access.  Keep in mind deductibles, co-pays and other health care costs your insurance company require, would still apply.

Effective Treatments

Our staff will assist you in the registration process and you’ll then go through an examination by a therapist. They will ask you a few questions, assess your injury/physical abilities, and develop a plan of care with all of your needs taken into consideration. If more sessions will be needed, our staff will then assist you in scheduling further appointments. This first visit will last approximately one hour. Follow-up visits are typically 40-50 minutes. Usually, you can expect to be seen 2-3 times per week. However, this will vary for each person and each diagnosis. You will also receive self-management recommendations. Our goal is to make you independent in your own rehabilitation program.

Excellent Quality Service

We treat our patients how we like to be treated.  We understand that most of our patients are experiencing some form of discomfort or pain, so we go the extra mile ensuring your experience with us is positive.

Flexible Scheduling

We’re all living busy lives. We offer flexible scheduling to make your visit convenient and timely.

Individual Treatments

Every patient is different, so our therapists will spend time listening to you, your concerns, your needs and your physician’s input to ensure the best possible outcome. Each individualized treatment plan is designed to get you back to your normal activities, back to work, and most importantly, back to life.

We listen. We collaborate. We communicate. We work with you and our team to find and achieve the best treatment plan to help you reach your goals. Our team is always learning and implementing the newest and proven rehabilitation practices.

In-Home Therapy Available

People who are unable to get out of their home, live within 6 miles of our outpatient clinic, and are not on Home Health services are able to be seen for outpatient services in your home. This program is set up for people who, for a short period of time, are unable to get out of their house. We typically transition these people into outpatient services in our clinic as they improve physically. It is ideal for people receiving a total joint replacement surgery. Please contact our clinic for more information.

Locally Owned

Choice Therapy opened its doors in 2009, proudly serving Bemidji, Blackduck, Bagley, Crookston, Gonvick, Hibbing and Kelliher. We’re local, we live here, we’re based here and we’re actively involved in the communities we serve.

Same Day Pay

Finding affordable health insurance can be a daunting task. There are rising costs of deductibles, co-pays, co-insurance and limited covered sessions. Same Day Pay is a benefit that Choice Therapy can offer to our patients that gives you the power to see a therapist, the freedom to set the proper visit limits with your therapist and pay a flat rate each session without billing your insurance company. There are several advantages to this program:

Less required paperwork

Your right to choose your provider

  • Pay an established flat rate fee with no billing or insurance company required
  • Freedom to set the visit limits with your therapist
  • A health plan with a high deductible that has not been met
  • Prompt and courteous care

Quality Care

Every patient is different, so our therapists will spend time listening to your needs and concerns to ensure the best possible outcome. Each plan is designed to get you back to your normal activities, back to work, and most importantly, back to life.
