Amy Dobberteen is an experienced health care attorney with over 20 years of demonstrated achievement, industry knowledge, and a history of developing and sustaining long-term professional relationships.
Ms. Dobberteen has significant health care experience in regulatory compliance and enforcement matters. She worked ten years as an enforcement attorney with the California Department of Managed Care; her final six years serving as the Deputy Director, Chief of Enforcement. In this role, Ms. Dobberteen supervised a staff of ten attorneys ensuring compliance with the Knox-Keene Act and its implementing regulations. Ms. Dobberteen guided the DMHC’s audits, surveys, investigations and discovery. She ensured that cases brought by the DMHC were properly prepared for trial or administrative action.
Upon leaving the DMHC, Ms. Dobberteen was employed by Molina Healthcare as an Assistant General Counsel and Associate Vice-President. At Molina, she provided legal guidance and counsel to one of California’s and the nation’s largest Medi-Cal / Medicaid managed care plans. Most recently, supervising the implementation of the complex regulatory framework governing the Affordable Care Act (Obama Care), both on the federal level and in conjunction with 14 separate state laws and regulations, giving her a breadth beyond California’s borders.
Her combined experience as California’s chief managed healthcare enforcement attorney, and an Assistant General Counsel for a major provider of government managed care services, has allowed Ms. Dobberteen to develop a unique perspective and keen understanding of issues facing the managed healthcare industry. This experience allows Ms. Dobberteen to think “outside the box” when addressing a client’s legal issues and regulatory compliance concerns.
A natural public speaker, Ms. Dobberteen is routinely invited to speak at major healthcare conferences, and has testified before Congress on important issues facing the healthcare industry.
