He is currently an expert resource to the U.S. Senate on the future of healthcare.  He has been at the center of U.S. health care transformation, advancing free market consumer-based solutions to lower the number of uninsureds, improve mental health coverage, and advance employer introductions of healthcare consumerism.

Over the years Bachman has worked on health policy issues and market transformation ideas. 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.
