The United States government has been providing access to Medicare Advantage plans, and when they allowed private companies to start providing the services as well, InnovaCare was one of the companies that chipped in. Their main agenda was to help spread these service to as many people as possible. While the company has been operational for more than ten years, its performance has improved greatly in the previous five years, and this can be credited to the dedication of their leadership team. Currently, InnovaCare is one of the best companies offering Medicare Advantage services in Puerto Rico.
