Superior Offers COVID-19 Support for Grant Writing and Small Business Loan Applications
Superior HealthPlan is providing assistance to network providers in Texas who are seeking relief amid the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic through the Small Business Administration (SBA) and the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act. Superior providers now have access to a dedicated online Provider Financial Support & Resources Portal developed by Centene Corporation, a leading multi-national health-care company. As part of the Centene family, Superior is providing access to these resources to aid Texas providers in researching benefits they may be eligible for, grant writing and applying for business loans.
Through the portal, providers can:
- Apply for various benefits, including small business loans, a paycheck protection plan and various grants. This includes Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs), behavioral health providers and community-based behavioral health organizations, Centers for Independent Living (CILs), and long-term services and supports (LTSS) organizations operating on the front lines.
- Explore additional funds through state-offered loans and grants by working with nationally recognized healthcare consultants, organizations, state government agencies and former SBA executives.
- View financial support webinars.
- Engage in one-on-one consulting with key experts.
Superior and Centene have made it a priority to support providers, especially small providers, during the COVID-19 pandemic. Centene previously announced that its health plans, including Superior, would reduce the administrative burden to providers by eliminating the need for them to collect co-pays and removing authorization requirements for COVID-19 related treatment for most members. If you are a Superior provider looking for more information about benefits you may be eligible for, please visit the Centene COVID-19 Resources Center.
