The Alliance of Alabama Healthcare Consumers, (Alliance), an organization of public and private employers focused on providing an environment for affordable, quality, accessible, and sustainable healthcare for businesses across Alabama, has named Robin Stone as its Executive Director.

The Alliance, formed in 2022, represents a diverse group of public and private organizations that collectively, provide healthcare benefits to over 3,000,000 employees and family members throughout every corner of Alabama.

“The objective of the Alliance is to actively and constructively engage in policy and legislative discussions on issues that specifically impact the ability of employers to provide and sustain affordable healthcare benefits to their workforce and families,” said Taylor Williams, speaking for the Alliance Board. “We will work proactively to communicate with legislators and policymakers to ensure that they are informed about the impact of their decisions on all types of employers, both large and small.”

“The Alliance will seek to work constructively with the diverse segments of the healthcare delivery system. Robin’s background on healthcare benefit issues will be a valuable resource to policymakers. His extensive experience in the business community, the legislature and state government make him uniquely qualified to lead the Alliance,” Williams added. 

Stone most recently led the Business Council of Alabama, the state’s largest and most diverse industry sector business organization. Prior to the BCA, Stone oversaw governmental affairs operations for Blue Cross Blue Shield of Alabama. He served in the Cabinet of Governor Bob Riley as Legislative Affairs Director and also in a series of executive positions with The Boeing Company in Huntsville, Alabama; Seattle, Washington; and Washington, D.C. Stone is also the principal of Robin Stone Company, a public and governmental affairs firm. 

“Alabama employers have provided the security of healthcare benefits to their workers for decades,” states Stone. “Employer provided healthcare benefits is the foundation that supports the state’s healthcare delivery system in Alabama, which also has a tremendous impact on the state’s overall economy. Employers are not only providing and sustaining direct jobs themselves but are also generating additional healthcare industry jobs through the benefits they provide. The Alliance will provide employers with a voice to advocate to legislators and policymakers on issues that impact the cost, quality, accessibility, and sustainability of healthcare benefits they are providing directly to their workforce and for their families.”

“The Alliance will seek to work proactively with the various groups that are part of Alabama’s healthcare delivery system and constructively to build sound policies regarding quality healthcare that is sustainable, affordable,” Stone added.
