He worked closely with the Bush White House and Treasury on the language and principles of the 2002 Health Reimbursement Arrangement (HRA) guidelines, provided policy input on Health Savings Accounts (HSA), and consulted with various government agencies on national health issues and legislative and regulatory proposals. 

Working across the political aisle Ron has worked with the Carter Center, Senator Kennedy, and Senator Wellstone on mental health issues.  He testified on over 30 states and before Congress in support of mental health parity.  He has served as a designated expert on actuarial issues to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), the Congressional Budget Office (CBO), the Department of Labor (DOL), the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) and several members of Congress.
