Krieg DeVault is proud to announce that attorney Amanda K. Schipp has joined as Of Counsel in the firm's Health Care Practice Group.
Schipp, who brings over 12 years of experience to the firm, focuses her practice in the areas of publicly financed healthcare programs, particularly Medicaid and the Affordable Care Act. Ms. Schipp has experience working in multiple areas of health care policy, and has counseled clients on a wide variety of matters including Medicaid reform strategies and managed care requirements.
Prior to joining Krieg DeVault, Ms. Schipp served as a Senior Policy Consultant at HMA Medicaid Market Solutions, previously SVC, Inc. As a consultant, she worked closely with government leaders, health plans, and other healthcare clients in navigating the complex statutory and regulatory Medicaid landscape to analyze the impact on her client’s policy objectives, program design, and compliance in an ever changing federal and state environment. Ms. Schipp was intimately involved in the development and implementation of several groundbreaking Section 1115 Medicaid demonstration projects, becoming a national leader in drafting and negotiating complex Medicaid waivers. She is well-versed in both the formal guidance and unofficial policies of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), and is therefore uniquely positioned to bring her years of experience working with states and CMS to assist her clients with their individual needs.
“I am very excited to join Krieg DeVault’s regionally-recognized Health Care Practice Group,” said Schipp. “I feel that my extensive experience in the areas of Medicaid and health care policy are a natural fit for the firm’s growing client base.”
Prior to consulting, Ms. Schipp gained experience in her role at the Indiana Family & Social Services Administration, the state’s health and human services agency, where she served as Strategic Initiatives Programs Director, managing the coordination of health policies across all of the divisions within the state’s largest agency.
Ms. Schipp is a past recipient of the Governors’ Public Service Achievement Award. She is a graduate of the Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law, and is admitted to practice in Indiana.
