Anthem to host webinar for network providers on SBA loans and other federal relief programs in response to COVID-19 5

We are committed to helping care providers learn how you can secure resources to support yourselves and your business during the COVID-19 crisis. This Thursday, April 30, 2020, Anthem is hosting a webinar to share information and resources with its network providers regarding opportunities providers have to access loans through the U.S Small Business Administration (SBA) and other federal programs in response to the economic impact of COVID-19 on care providers that are also small employers.

The federal Coronavirus, Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act included an initial $350 billion Paycheck Protection Program that provides 100% federally guaranteed loans to small employers. On Monday, April 27, 2020, the SBA resumed accepting applications for PPP loans in response to an additional $320 billion added to the program in recent days. These loans may be forgiven if borrowers maintain or restore their payrolls to pre-COVID-19 levels.

Register now to learn more about federal financial relief for providers in response to COVID-19 (space is limited). A webinar recording will be available on our Provider News page on Anthem.com.

Webinar date and time
Thursday, April 30, 2020
