With the passage of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), Medicaid expansion and the growing momentum towards outcomes-based payment models, Colorado primary care providers are adapting to a changing environment. Debt can be a strategic and financially viable way to support primary care clinics’ one-time and ongoing resource needs connected to adaptation. This 90-minute webinar, “An Introduction to Debt & Financing for Colorado Primary Care Clinics” facilitated by Nonprofit Finance Fund is intended for primary care clinic staff and board members interested in applying for the Strengthening Primary Care funding opportunity. It is structured to provide an understanding of the key opportunities and risks associated with the use of debt to support capitalization needs. The training includes content that will provide participants with:
- A greater understanding of the types of loans that primary care clinics commonly utilize;
- Best-practices in accessing debt and its strategic uses; and
- Approaches to communicating resource needs and preparing for requests for debt (i.e., roles of people, processes and financial reports).
