As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to surround every part of our daily lives, it has brought about a deeper appreciation of you, our clients, who are serving the needs of your communities and  providing such vitally important services in the face of lots of sadness and challenging times. Your commitment and dedication are much recognized and appreciated.

Though the past five months have brought about numerous changes in our day to day operations, one constant has remained the same for The Rybar Group: Our focus on providing value and support to our clients. With this focus in mind, our organization has developed an approach to the COVID-19 pandemic centered around several key considerations:

  • Continued and Strengthened Commitment to our Clients. The response from our team has been strong and powerful during this time of continuously changing regulations. Having years of expertise helping providers understand the opportunities available and ensuring that they take full advantage of these has been instrumental as our team works to assist our clients through the myriad of information. Past experience working within facilities and/or as MAC auditors has proven to be beneficial as our team develops a detailed methodology for building strong support to assist providers in maintaining the CARES Act funds received.
  • Investment in Resources. We continue to make significant investments to ensure that The Rybar Group has the appropriate expertise and the varied skill set needed to support our clients. Since the start of COVID we have brought on two new team members, each who offer significant healthcare finance and revenue expertise, and we will continue to work to ensure we are able to meet the needs of our industry.
  • Maintaining a Team Approach. Our past investment in technology tools has allowed our team members to continue working together cohesively both internally and with our clients to ensure that we are offering solutions in an effective and efficient manner.
  • The safety of our staff, family and clients is at the forefront of our operational thought process. Modifications continue to be made to our processes to ensure our clients receive the same high-level of service while adhering to State and Federal guidelines.

Please know that we are committed to serving our clients and that we are available to assist you as you work through the barriers facing your organizations. We really appreciate you as a client!

Have a good week!!!
