InnovaCare Health, a provider of Medicare Advantage plans and physician practice services is experience growth and rich success under the leadership of CEO Rick Shinto. With more than 20 years of experience, Rick Shinto is a force to be reckoned with when it comes to healthcare plans. Starting out as a physician, his experience far outweighs the leadership of any company where the CEO has no experience as a physician. The ability to work with the patient and see them through the entire process is what makes the difference between him and others.
Rick Shinto’s chosen specialty was working as an internist and as a pulmonologist. Working in Southern California, he was able to work with a wide variety of people and health conditions. He also spent time as a VP for MedPartners, a company that is dedicated to staffing in the healthcare industry. His time spent with MedPartners was shortened when he chose to take on the role of senior medical officer with Cal Optimal Health Plan, a program that is specifically designed to serve senior adults. One of the greatest insights that Shinto had going forward in his career, was his exposure to individuals from all income levels.
Having worked with both low-income family plans and others, he was able to see the need for quality plans for all. This in turn has aided him in serving the sector of healthcare that is focused on Medicare Advantage Plans as well as Medicaid plans. His role in medical management for NAMM in California was yet another important role that helped Rick Shinto to form his leadership abilities that he now uses to help others during his time at InnovaCare Health. It was in 2012 that Aveta Inc., a company he worked with was sold, but his time there in a leadership role aided in improving his skills working with managed care plans.
Rick Shinto has worked in all aspects of healthcare, and has watched the formation of healthcare plans first-hand. It was in June of 2012 that he received a prestigious award. He received the Entrepreneur of the Year Award, and since that time, he has been improving upon healthcare plans and helping people get the care they deserve with quality plans at affordable rates.
