During these uncertain and challenging times, the Excellus BCBS team is here to help provide access to critical resources to support you, our employers, their businesses and employees. If your employer groups need assistance, the Small Business Administration (SBA) has programs and initiatives in place as a result of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act, passed on March 27, 2020.
These programs include:
- Paycheck Protection Program - Assistance to cover the cost of retaining employees
- Emergency Economic Injury Grant - Grants to help cover your business now
- Small Business Debt Relief Program - Relief from keeping up with payments on your current or potential SBA loan
