Mac is now retired. He previously was the Chief Strategy Officer for MorningStar Actuarial Consulting as well as President of McCarthy Actuarial Consulting. Mac combined the discipline of actuarial science with extensive experience and a reputation for integrity to help employers, health plans and researchers find innovative solutions to health and welfare issues. He has over 40 years of health and welfare actuarial experience, with over 30 years advising employers and plans on the development and financial management of innovative programs. Since 2008, much of his focus has been on U.S. healthcare reform, as it is expressed in legislation as well as more fundamental reform. Beyond that, Mac's specialties include healthcare claim data analysis, wellness and disease management programs, multi-option benefit programs, and innovations in healthcare programs. Mac was instrumental in the initiation of the Healthcare Reform Community (now the Healthcare Community). In 2011, Mac received the CCA's Most Valuable Volunteer award, specifically for his contributions in the area of actuarial aspects of healthcare reform. Prior to joining MorningStar Actuarial Consulting, he founded McCarthy Actuarial Consulting in 2009. Before that, Mac was a principal and national resource at Mercer Health & Benefits and held a variety of group actuarial and administration positions at two insurance companies.

He is currently a Retired Fellow of the Conference of Consulting Actuaries, was an Associate, then Fellow of the Society of Actuaries from 1991 to 2018, and was a Member of the American Academy of Actuaries from 1990 to 2018.
