CEO Dr. Rick Shinto And CAO Penelope Kokkinides: InnovaCare Health’s Driving Force

InnovaCare Health CEO Richard Shinto, M.D. and CAO Penelope Kokkinides are the two leading forces behind the growth of the company into a national leader in managed care for Medicare Advantage beneficiaries. The two have put the company on a path to provide quality care at prices that are acceptable under the Medicare Advantage program. Medicare Advantage is a program through which Medicare recipients can use private insurance companies to pay for the medical services they need. The insurance companies are then reimbursed by the federal government.

With original Medicare, beneficiaries receive their medical treatment through approved medical facilities. Those services are paid for by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. InnovaCare Health through their Medicaid programs, Provider Networks and Medicare Advantage is able to provide higher quality care yet keep the costs within the Medicare Advantage price guidelines. This is because of the innovate, caring leadership of Dr. Shinto and Penelope Kokkinides. Their facilities use the best doctors and cutting-edge technologies to provide outstanding care cost-efficiently.

Under the experienced leadership of CEO Dr. Rick Shinto and Penelope Kokkinides, CAO, InnovaCare Health has become known for using state-of-the-art facilities, industry leading doctors and medical staff, the most effective medical practices, fostering strong patient-doctor relationships and putting the patient first.
