Jerry W. “Rusty” Ingalls | Founder & President

Conducting services with honest principles that are patient centered, and community focused form the ideology behind Rusty’s healthcare business philosophy. Since the inception of his legacy company in 1990, through the founding of NFV in 1996 and still today; NFV’s family of employees keep the course in their commitment to providing timely, cost effective, and compassionate care to those they serve by keying in on solutions to financial burdens carried by both the patient and the organization.

When once prompted by a Hospital Journal in asking, “What is the formula for a successful Eligibility Company?” Rusty responded, “There is no formula for success. Healthcare is a dynamic field. One must personally and professionally be able to understand, adapt, implement and convey change rationale. Every hospital has its own unique challenges as every patient has their own set of circumstances. You have to treat every client and patient individually by recognizing the uniqueness of each individual, hospital, and organization.” Rusty has served in leadership roles while being a long-standing member of both the American Association of Healthcare Administrative Management (AAHAM) and the Healthcare Financial Management Association (HFMA). Additionally, Rusty participated on both Medicaid and CMS task forces throughout his career to prompt positive change in services and practice in the Healthcare industry. Rusty is originally from Louisiana where he earned degrees in marketing, economics, and history from Nicholls State University. He has resided in Florida since 1990, the birthplace of NFV.
