First and foremost, most pharmacist knows that attempting to secure an independent pharmacy loan from a bank is an exercise of frustration, that eventually leads to a dead end. In fact, more than 80% of independent pharmacists that attempt the traditional financing route eventually walk away battered and bruised, like a 15 round boxing match that ended in defeat. The reality of the situation, there is an 80% chance you will be turned down by your bank when applying for an independent pharmacy loan. And keep in mind, traditional banks require roughly 30% of the total loan amount down (as skin in the game) they also put a blanket lien on all business assets, AND ALL PERSONAL ASSETS, along with taking anywhere from 2-8 months to actually fund. So unless you have an absolutely pristine credit history and credit score, roughly 20% to 30% of the entire loan amount hiding under your mattress, 20 to 100 hours compiling more paperwork than you could possibly imagine, and 2-8 months to wait around for financing, attempting to secure a bank loan for your independent pharmacy is a complete and utter waste of time.
Seriously, do you really want to put up 30% of the loan amount, and have to sign over your home in business as collateral for a bank loan?
Next, you have different funding solutions such as a merchant cash advance that will advance you money based upon cash sales, or credit card sales. These options are quick, and much easier to get than a bank loan, but they aren't the most prudent solution available. Why? Well, for a few reasons. Because merchant cash advances are made available based upon credit card sales. So, what if your credit card sales is just a small portion of your gross revenue? You wind up with a very small merchant cash advance, as a percentage of your gross revenue, coming from credit card sales. Most, if not all, independent pharmacists along with most healthcare related industries get paid from insurance reimbursements. So, when taking a daily draw merchant cash advance or ACH, you are essentially paying back the advance daily, on money you may not receive for 30, 60, 90 days. We have seen thousands of pharmacy owners and other healthcare professionals take out daily payment cash advances, but struggle to pay it back. It's great to get a lump sum of cash, but you are floating a lot of money in the interim of getting paid back from the insurance companies. Another-words, you are paying daily on money you may not get back for a few months.
Can you say cash crunch?!?!?

Unlike typical cash advance lenders who only consider credit card receipts, LVRG understands that as an independent pharmacy owner, credit card sales only constitute a tiny portion of your overall revenue. That’s why when qualifying for a LVRG healthcare cash advance, the amount your business is able to receive is based on your historic volume of insurance receivables as well as credit card receivables. By considering insurance receipts from any private or government insurance provider, including Medicare and Medicaid, we can offer substantially larger financing amounts with a much lower cost of capital than other traditional cash advance lenders.
Instead of taking a fixed daily, weekly, or monthly amount, repayment occurs through collection of a predetermined, fixed percentage of future insurance receivables. We only get repaid as you're repaid from any or all of your insurance processors.
Our approval process is painless. All we need to determine how much you qualify for is a one page application and your four most recent months of bank statements. We’ll determine which insurance types it makes sense to use as a repayment method and what percentage of those insurance types we’ll hold back to repay the financing. Within a few hours we’ll provide a completely free, no-obligation quote for your consideration. Our primary goal is to help your business grow. After discovering the speed and ease of acquiring additional funds, the majority of our clients decide to renew. We may be providing short-term financing, but we also strive to be your long-term partner in improving your business’ cash flow.
