Gary Baldwin is a partner in Crowell & Moring's San Francisco office, where he practices in the Health Care Group. Gary's practice is focused on health plan regulatory compliance, which includes compliance with the Knox-Keene Act, Affordable Care Act and California's Medi-Cal program requirements. His compliance practice ranges from licensing filings, to financial matters, to potential regulatory enforcement actions. 

Prior to joining Crowell & Moring, Gary was the deputy director, Plan and Provider Relations, at the California Department of Managed Health Care (DMHC), where he was the primary advisor to the director on plan and provider issues and provided strategic planning and policy direction on emerging issues and industry trends. He also served as the liaison with Covered California on issues pertaining to the approval of the health plan products offered on the exchange. Prior to his appointment, Gary served as an assistant chief counsel in the Division of Licensing, where he oversaw the review of commercial and Medi-Cal licensing filings, which included applications, material modifications, and amendments to health plan documents, as well as overseeing the DMHC's network staff. With over 13 years' experience as a regulator, Gary became accustomed to creating solutions to regulatory issues that would satisfy various stakeholder interests.
