Business Loan Alternatives for Medical Professionals
Practices are choosing SSF for their medical financing
Your practice is both your passion and often your greatest source of aggravation. A health worker’s day never seems to end. But the only thing more challenging than keeping people healthy is getting the funding you need from the bank. Maybe you’ve applied for a small business loan and been turned down, or you can’t afford to wait the weeks and weeks a bank loan would take to get you the capital you need. A merchant cash advance from SSF offers a better way
When you get an answer from us, you know it’s valid and that the funds will arrive in a short period of time.
The SSF advantage: what it can do for your practice
Any small business owner knows that it costs money to make money, and that goes double for medical professionals. On top of all the normal costs of doing business, you also have to be prepared for unexpected needs. One problem with a traditional bank loan is its inflexibility. When applying for a loan you may have to outline exactly how you intend to spend it, and banks’ strict payment deadlines don’t allow you to hold on to capital for uses you can’t anticipate. Here are just a few things you can use one of SSF’s small business loan alternatives for: diagnostic equipment, medical supplies, filing and storage, changes in malpractice insurance rates, expanding your advertising, buying out a partner, taxes, repairs, renovations, and expansion, any other needs.
Fast and simple with minimum documentation required
Most of our practices receive a pre-qualification from us within hours of submitting the 1-page application, and actually receive the money in their business bank account within days. The process for obtaining a traditional small business loan from a bank could take several months.
We are not a bank, so we don’t require a lot of documentation. For example, unlike for traditional bank loans, you do not have to provide tax returns, financial statements, or physical collateral in order to obtain a business cash advance. We have a simple one-page application and may only require 4 months of credit card processing statements and 2 months of bank statements.
Personal credit isn't a problem and no payment schedules
We take many factors into consideration through our proprietary underwriting process, and we have funded thousands of merchants who have low credit scores. Business loans often require a minimum FICO or credit score.
A business cash advance isn’t a traditional loan. The advance is paid back as a percentage of your sales. When business picks up, you pay back more and when business slows, you pay back less.
