To our valued clients,

First, I want to say that we here at The Rybar Group can only try to appreciate the stress level that your organizations are facing as you work to cope with the challenges of providing your communities with the greatest assistance possible to stem the spread of the virus and to treat the patients who have become ill. Added to this, you have the task of continuing to care for the many patients in the course of other various treatments and illnesses. We commend you and thank you for this dedication.

Last week we put our work at home processes into 100% effect. The Rybar Group invested in the necessary infrastructure over the past couple of years, and we are able to comply with the current requirements for social distancing and “stay at home” mandates while continuing to serving you with the same exceptional service level as in the past. Please be assured that our associates remain on the job and are available via phone, text or email to support you and your organization

Lastly, please know that The Rybar Group is committed to monitoring the continuous flow of information on the new legislation, working to determine how they can benefit you, our clients. We understand the financial burdens that are accumulating and are dedicated to working on ways to improve your revenue flow. Expect ongoing communication from us as we leverage the expertise of our team along with the resources available to us through our relationship with BDO to identify opportunities as we move forward through this challenging time.

Please call us if you need any help in any manner. We are fully available to assist with the many questions which have arisen and that will occur in the coming weeks. We appreciate and value our relationship with you and your teams.

Please stay safe and healthy,

Ronald K. Rybar

President

Medicare HMO Reimbursement Impact on CAHs

As Medicare patients are moving from traditional coverage to a HMO product, it is important to ensure your contracts and payment model are moving appropriately as well.

With Medicare allowed cost based reimbursement to Critical Access Hospitals (CAHs), your Medicare HMO reimbursement needs to be reviewed to ensure you are receiving rates that are based on your facility’s costs.

Are you confident you are receiving all the reimbursement you are entitled to?

As a rural healthcare provider, you are an extremely important asset in your community. Specializing in CAH reimbursement, The Rybar Group will work to ensure that you are receiving appropriate Medicare HMO payments and that you have implemented a sound cost reimbursed strategy.

To further discuss what the transition can mean to you and your facility’s revenue, contact The Rybar Group today.
