Monisha Machado-Pereira


Monisha Machado-Pereira, a principal in McKinsey’s Chicago office, currently leads the Medicare service line within the firm’s Healthcare Systems and Services Practice. Since joining the firm, Monisha has focused on serving clients in the healthcare space, including large health plans, hospital systems, retail pharmacies, pharmaceutical, and medical products companies. Her recent experiences include working with large health plans to review their Medicare business performance and to diagnose and implement areas of opportunity; defining local-market Medicare strategies for regional health plans; designing the end-to-end revenue optimization (risk adjustment and stars) process for payors, including segment-specific requirements; and defining and implementing post-reform payor product strategies and developing novel, collaborative reimbursement models with providers (e.g., ACOs). She has also bridged the payor–provider divide by developing innovative, combined strategies to reduce medical and administrative costs, and she has managed the implementation of large-scale health system operational transformations.

Before joining McKinsey, Monisha worked as a dental surgeon. She also served in the Office of the President of the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, helping to design and implement a new operational strategy focused on service line lean transformation. She has a degree in dental surgery from India and a master’s degree in health policy and management from Harvard University.
