Through the CARES Act, the SBA has expanded financing options for small businesses to help them weather the economic downturn of the COVID-19 pandemic.
SBA loans aren’t the only financing solutions for healthcare businesses. Here are some of the best options to support your healthcare business—now and in the future
Opening a private practice? Finally ready to ditch the instability of a landlord and take the space of your medical office into your own hands? Say hello to a commercial mortgage. A commercial mortgage is similar to a residential mortgage in that it’s used to finance a property, but this type works for your healthcare business. Commercial mortgages can also be used if you’re planning major renovations or updates to a medical office you already own.
Patients and insurance companies slow to pay? We feel your pain and so does accounts receivable financing. This small business loan allows you to borrow against the money you are owed to increase your working capital in the short term.
Healthcare can come with some big-ticket equipment. If your business needs to purchase or repair a CAT scan machine, laser, or X-ray machine for your medical or dentist office, consider an equipment loan. This form of financing was designed specifically for use to buy or fix business-related equipment. Because the equipment itself secures the loan, it can be easier to qualify and you may be eligible for lower rates.
The business term loan is the steady, classic business loan option. If you’re looking to keep it classic, business term loans offer terms typically between 1 and 3 years and can fund a variety of needs.
Financing when you need it, flexibility when you don’t. A business line of credit allows medical professionals to borrow against a predetermined sum of money. You can borrow as much as you want, as often as you’d like. There’s no obligation to use the full amount and you only owe interest on what you use.
Business credit cards are a part of a balanced financial diet for most businesses. Operating a healthcare business comes with costs. From disposable gloves and tongue depressors to printer paper, every medical business regularly needs to purchase supplies. Make those purchases work for you with a business credit card, which may allow you to earn rewards for these purchases. Earn enough rewards and business-as-usual may be able to help pay for your next much-needed vacation.
Ready to take the next step in building your healthcare empire? A business acquisition loan can help you finance the purchase of an existing dentist, doctor, or other medical business. A business acquisition loan empowers you to take advantage of that phenomenal business opportunity, even if you don’t have the capital to purchase it outright.
