Penelope Kokkinides is the chief administrative officer of Innovacare Health. Recently, she was in a meeting with President Donald Trump to discuss matters of health care services in Puerto Rico. In this meeting which took place in the white house, the two discussed how they could improve health services for the people of Puerto Rico given that there has been an increased appeal for the government to improve medical services in this region. Currently, Puerto Rico is supported by Medicare Advantage Plans although there is more that needs to be done for all people on this island to access quality services. One of the concerns that Penelope Kokkinides informed the president is that the funding that this island is currently receiving from the government is not sufficient to take care of healthcare matters. Since 2011, there has been a reduction by over $1 billion in the healthcare budget offered to Puerto Ricans. Penelope Kokkinides was hopeful that President Trump would address this issue and allow Puerto Ricans to enjoy the benefits of good health care services just like other states in the United States. With an increased health budget, medicare advantage plans will manage to address the health needs of the people on this island.
