Henry Claypool
Executive Vice President
Having sustained a spinal cord injury in a snow skiing accident in college, Henry Claypool has been living with a disability for more than thirty years. This experience has fostered a deep personal commitment to ensuring that all Americans with disabilities are able to access the services and supports they need to lead productive and fulfilling lives-and this has been the focus of his professional life. In the period of his life immediately following his injury, Claypool relied on Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security Disability Insurance and Supplemental Security Insurance. Support from these programs enabled him to finish college and pursue a career of service to others.
Claypool's career has spanned work providing direct services at the community level to working on federal policy issues in his most recent role in public service as a Senior Advisor to the Secretary of Health and Human Services. While at HHS, Claypool was a principal architect of the administration's efforts to expanding access to community living services, which culminated in the creation of the Administration for Community Living. Currently, he is the Executive Vice President of the American Association of People with Disabilities. In these roles, he relies on his unique background of public service and personal experience to seek pragmatic policy solutions.

WASHINGTON, DC - The American Association of People with Disabilities (AAPD) is pleased to announce Mr. Henry Claypool as the new Executive Vice President for Policy.
Mr. Claypool has spent his career advocating for the rights and needs of people living with disabilities. Most recently, he served as the Senior Advisor for Disability Policy to Kathleen Sebelius, the Secretary of Health & Human Services. Secretary Sebelius described Henry as a passionate disability advocate who "brought to his work a passion for advocacy, a sharp understanding of policy, and a deep commitment to improving the lives of people with disabilities and older adults."
"Mr. Claypool brings a wealth of experience and passion to AAPD.
"With Mr. Claypool's wealth of knowledge and expertise, he will lead the charge to develop innovative policy solutions to persistent challenges facing our community."
Mr. Claypool's immediate priorities include leading the development of a strategic policy agenda to create new opportunities to achieve economic self-sufficiency, made possible by the Affordable Care Act. Mr. Claypool's efforts will be designed to address the interest of a broad range of constituencies that fall under the civil rights protects of the ADA.
Powers Pyles - Issue 13, 6 May 2004 [cached]
Henry Claypool, Co-Director of Advancing Independence and Co-Chair of the ITEM Coalition, as well as a K-11 wheelchair consumer himself, asked Congress and government officials as they tackle this fraud and abuse problem, to bear in mind that the ambiguity and restrictive nature of the current policy denies access to power mobility for countless needy recipients annually. Mr. Claypool pointed to Medicare's current "in the home" coverage criteria, which provides power wheelchairs only to individuals who need them to move about the "four walls of their home" and not for use in the community, school or workplace. Additionally, the witness reminded CMS that the term "in the home" was created when Medicare Part B began to cover durable medical equipment and wanted to differentiate between equipment used by the patient in a hospital and equipment used in the individual's home. He included three stories, one being his own, in which deserving individuals have or would be denied power wheelchairs under this standard.
Claypool continued by recommending the agency communicate with medical professionals and consumers to develop clear coverage criteria that values the functionality and independence of people with disabilities and compliments other current policies such as Chairman Grassley's Ticket to Work Program.
