Schneider served as senior advisor to the Center on health policy issues, including Medicaid, the State Children’s Health Insurance Program, the uninsured, and Medicare’s role for low-income people.
In 2000, Schneider founded a consulting firm, Medicaid Policy LLC, that specializes in Medicaid issues. Previously, Mr. Schneider spent 17 years on Capitol Hill, serving as counsel to the Subcommittee on Health and Environment of the House Energy and Commerce Committee where he was instrumental in designing major policy changes for the Medicaid program including measures to extend health coverage to millions of children, establishing minimum standards for the quality of care in nursing homes that receive federal Medicaid funds, and permitting the use of Medicaid funds for home- and community-based care as an alternative to nursing homes or other long-term-care institutions.
Mr. Schneider has authored numerous policy briefs on Medicaid issues, including what is widely regarded as the definitive overview of Medicaid eligibility, benefits, financing, and administration: The Medicaid Resource Book (2002), published by the Kaiser Commission on Medicaid and the Uninsured.
He also is an adjunct professor at George Washington University’s School of Public Health & Health Services. Mr. Schneider received a bachelor’s degree from Princeton University and a J.D. from the University of Pennsylvania.
