Older and poorer Americans are disproportionately affected by the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic. In this episode of Managed Care Cast, we speak with Richard Shinto, MD, MBA, president and CEO of InnovaCare Health, about the company’s care of their Medicare Advantage and Medicaid beneficiaries in Puerto Rico during the COVID-19 pandemic.

He last spoke with us in 2018 about the effect that Hurricane Maria had on the organization and its members. In today’s podcast, he shares how coping with the aftermath of the 2017 hurricane assisted them with the pandemic.
