PENELOPE KOKKINIDES’S JOURNEY IN MEDICAL CARE

InnovaCare Health, an organization that was set up in the late 90s has been a healthcare provider to many people for many years. It has provided Medicare Advantage plans and physician expertise to these people. The organization has gradually increased its influence over the past decade in the medical sector. In the process, leaders have sprouted from the roots of this organization and have gone on to become much-respected individuals in the community. One of this people is the leader and founder of the company, Dr. Richard Shinto. In his years in leadership, he has overseen some projects aimed at helping people in need of medical attention. His influence trickled down to one of his fellow leaders in the organization, Penelope Kokkinides.

With more than twenty years of experience, Penelope has become an influence especially to the women for her contribution to the health sector. She’s had an extensive career, more specifically in Medicare and Medicaid, which are government programs aimed at providing managed care to people. She’s worked on developing clinical programs that focus on improving Medicare and increasing efficiency of the operations that have been put in place to help the people.

Penelope Kokkinides even met with President Donald Trump in the White House where they had a meeting concerning the provision of affordable healthcare to Puerto Ricans who were affected by a hurricane that claimed the lives of some and displaced many more. Her extensive knowledge in the creation and management of clinical programs came in handy. She proposed that Medicare Advantage, a medical plan responsible for the provision of medical services to people, should have their funding increased so that the people of Puerto Rico could benefit from the services that were provided by Medicare Advantage.Other than that, she added that the people of Puerto Rico would not be able to afford the medical services being provided to them. Therefore, the payments being made by these people should be cut down.
