Henry Claypool

Codirector, Advancing Independence: Modernizing Medicare and Medicaid

Henry Claypool, codirector of AIMMM, is former senior advisor for disability policy to the administrator of the Health Care Financing Administration (now the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services) at HHS. While at HHS he played a key role in marshalling a highly effective implementation effort in response to the Olmstead decision that involved an extensive review of federal policy and development of guidance to states on the operation of the Medicaid program. He also was instrumental in developing policies that expanded Medicare's coverage policy regarding certain assistive technologies. After becoming disabled when he was a student at the University of Colorado, Claypool went on to become the director of the disability services office at its Boulder campus.
