Deputy Executive Director,
National Association of States United for Aging and Disabilities (NASUAD)
Camille Infussi Dobson is the Deputy Executive Director at the National Association of States United for Aging and Disabilities. In that role, she provides executive leadership and policy guidance to state aging and disabilities agencies, focused on managed long-term services and supports and quality measurement. She provides intensive technical assistance to states seeking to implement or improve their MLTSS programs on topics as diverse as stakeholder engagement, care management, MCO oversight mechanisms and quality measurement. She has served as an advisor to NCQA regarding LTSS accreditation standards as well as person-driven outcomes. She also represented the states on two different NQF committees working on HCBS quality measurement.
Prior to joining NASUAD, she worked for 10 years at the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, focusing on Medicaid policy and operations. Her responsibilities at CMS included negotiating and monitoring section 1115 Medicaid demonstrations; managing a team of analysts who reviewed and recommended approval of managed care waivers and State plan amendments, and most significantly, serving as Senior Policy Advisor for Medicaid managed care. In that role, she served as the agency’s policy expert on Medicaid managed care delivery system issues and directed the agency’s regulatory and technical assistance efforts regarding managed care. She was the lead author of CMS’ 2013 guidance to States laying out key elements for MLTSS programs, which has since been translated into the new Medicaid managed care rule.
Before joining CMS in 2005, she spent twelve years working in Medicaid operations, policy and compliance with two Maryland-based Medicaid MCOs. She received her bachelor’s degree in International Affairs and master’s degree in Public Administration, both from George Washington University.
