Cost reports are complex and ever-changing; and are key to optimizing your facility’s reimbursement and payment. The Rybar Group understands the importance that cost reports hold for healthcare entities on a variety of levels. Over the past two decades, we have gained a specialized expertise that offers our clients the confidence that the latest changes in regulations and hospital operations will be reflected in any cost reports filed or reviewed by The Rybar Group.

Having worked with Medicare Administrative Contractors and Medicaid Auditors nationwide, The Rybar Group offers a record of successful negotiations and appeals including success at the Provider Reimbursement Review Board. Working closely with your team, our consultants assess your work papers, documentation and prior-year cost reports to identify potential exposure and to provide optimal reimbursement methodologies.

COST REPORT PREPARATION

By using our Cost Report Preparation service, you will receive the security that your cost report has been prepared in a timely and accurate manner, reflective of current regulations and in a manner that optimizes your opportunities today and in the future.

We offer three types of preparation assistance: Full Preparation, Assisted Preparation, or a Pre-Filing Review. Each is designed to optimize your opportunities based on the facilities designation, services and current regulatory offerings.

PRIOR YEAR COST REPORT REVIEWS

We understand the importance that cost reports hold for healthcare entities on a variety of levels. Our consultants have assisted numerous providers nationwide through a review of their previously filed cost reports, working to identify potential exposure and reimbursement opportunities.

COST REPORT STRATEGIES

We provide healthcare providers with strategic guidance on how to optimize their cost reports today and in the future. Utilizing the knowledge gained from auditing, reviewing and analyzing a large number of complex issues that have materially affected cost report reimbursement for our clients, our consultants will assess and provide recommendations related to your current operations and your potential filing elections.

Our goal is to ensure that you are taking advantage of the various reimbursement regulations and are strategically optimizing your reimbursement opportunities.
