For years InnovaCare Health has been providing Medicare and Medicaid health insurance services to thousands. Their vision is built on sustainability, affordability, and quality service. Much of their current success can be attributed heavily in part to current President and CEO Rick Shinto.
Dr. Shinto has launched the organization into an age of prosperity not only for themselves, but for the people they provide to as well. The majority of Dr. Shinto’s life has been dedicated to the noble service that is the healthcare industry. Before Rick Shinto became the CEO of InnovaCare Health, he was the president and CEO of Aveta Inc. and before that he was the CMO of NAMM California. Prior to joining NAMM, Dr. Shinto was the COO and CMO of Medical Pathways Management Company. Dr. Shinto then served as Corporate Vice President of Medical Management for MedPartners until 1997, where he then left to become the CMO of Cal Optima Health Plan. On June 27, 2012 Dr. Shinto received the Entrepreneur of the Year award for his extraordinary demonstration of excellence and success as an innovator.
But Dr. Shinto isn’t the only one that’s attributed a great deal. Besides from the incredible team at InnovaCare Health, another dedicated crew member sticks out among the rest. Her name is Penelope Kokkinides and she is the current CAO of this stupendous organization. Like Dr. Shinto she is also heavily rooted in the healthcare industry, logging over 20 years of experience in government programs such as Medicaid and Medicare. Before becoming the CAO of InnovaCare Health, Kokkinides was the Executive Vice President and COO for Centerlight HealthCare, COO of Touchstone Health and Corporate Vice President of Disease Management and Care Management at AmeriChoice. For more information on Kokkinides, she is featured on sites such as crunchbase.com, linkedin.com and of course innovacarehealth.com. Penelope also has her own website, penelopekokkinides.com, where she lists a broad range of articles on topics she finds interesting in her daily life. These include but are not limited to; health and wellness, workplace etiquette, travel tips and much more.
InnovaCare Health made an announcement on July 28, 2016 adding three new executives to the leadership team. Jonathan Meyers as Chief Actuary Officer, Mike Sortino as Chief Accounting Officer, and of course Penelope Kokkinides as Chief Administrative Officer. Surely, InnovaCare Health and the people they serve have a healthy future ahead of them.
