An interview with Henry Claypool, Health and Human Services Office on Disability

Henry Claypool is the Director of this office. I sat down with him to learn his opinion on what the future holds for disability policy. Director Claypool incurred a spinal cord injury when he was a sophomore in college at the University of Colorado in Boulder. After his injury Claypool worked at the Center for People with Disabilities in Boulder and later as Director of the Office of Services to Students with Disabilities at the University of Colorado. Eventually he made his way to DC, where he continues to work currently.
The DOD may not be very well known to the public because it is part of the Department of Health and human services but that doesn't mean it plays a minor role in policy change.
"[The Department of Disability] functions as an advisor... We platform events, pick priorities, and we do our best to make things relevant" said Claypool. It is important for there to be an advocate in DC because with all the other issues out there especially when things such as healthcare are being discussed it is important for there to be someone there to advocate for those who can not advocate for themselves.
It has been in the news for what seems like an eternity now but with the passage of the new healthcare bill there will be a large impact on the disability community and the care which persons with disabilities receive. The largest change that will radically increase health care coverage is the new law's prohibition on insurance companies which prohibits them from denying coverage based on a pre-existing condition.
"Now that pre-existing claims won't be denied it will be easier for people to deal with [insurance] companies and those with disabilities will be treated the same as those without disabilities...It was a big step in the fight for equal civil rights" explained Claypool.
"We have a vibrant communication with HUD, we are working to provide better housing so people in local communities can find better services" said Claypool.
The DOD has advocated for better disability policy but as Claypool states, "Disability Policy is still a relatively new thing. And because of this there are still many challenges going forward," said Claypool. "We need to stay focused on what is important and demonstrate what works."
And that will be the key to gaining the opportunities and equality that persons with disabilities need to overcome the stereotypes that prevent them from participating fully in employment and the other dimentions of society. It will be individuals like Henry Claypool and his dedicated team at the Department of Disability to continue to advocate on Capitol Hill for those who cannot advocate for themselves and prove that disability policy is valueable, not just to persons with disabilities, but to the entire nation.
