How it works
BHG doesn’t provide exact numbers on how it determines your rate. But like all lenders, it will likely depend on your time in business, revenue and current debt. Because BHG factors your personal information into its decision, your income and credit score may also play a role in the APR you’re offered. The better your business and personal finances, the more likely you are to score a low rate and qualify for a larger laon amount.
What do I need to qualify?
There are only a few hard requirements to get most BHG business loans:
- Minimum credit score of 660
- No bankruptcies in the past year
- Licensed professional
While BHG considers factors such as your business revenue and time in business when reviewing your application, there are no hard minimums. And you don’t necessarily have to be the owner of a physical practice to qualify — just a licensed professional.
What information do I need to apply?
When you fill out its online application, be prepared to submit the following details:
- Annual personal income
- Professional medical title, specialty and licensed state
- Social Security number
- Date of birth
- Business structure, sales and your ownership percentage
Once you submit your application, you may also have to supply proof of income, a copy of your government-issued photo ID and a completed IRS Form 8821, which gives it permission to verify your business’s last two years of tax returns.
What industries does BHG work with?
While BHG places a large focus on businesses in the healthcare industry, it recently launched a division called Pro Funding that offers financing to other industries that require a professional license. These include law firms, CPAs, engineering firms and architecture firms — among others.
What other types of financing does BHG offer?
BHG also offers three business credit card options for its customers. APR ranges from 10.99% to 20.99%.
