Tim Vines, president and CEO of Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Alabama, has been chosen as chair of the board of the national Blue Cross Blue Shield organization.

The national board provides guidance and oversight for the 35 member organizations that together provide health care coverage for one in three Americans.

“I’m grateful for the opportunity to serve as chair of the BCBSA Board. I look forward to partnering with my colleagues as we continue the Association’s progress of providing all Americans access to quality, affordable health care,” said Vines.

Vines has been with the Alabama BCBS group for 27 years and has been president and CEO since 2018. He also serves on the board of Auburn University, Samford University, Regions Financial Corp. and the Business Council of Alabama.

Kim Keck, president and CEO of BCBSA, praised Vines’ predecessor, David Holmberg, saying, “I greatly appreciate David’s exceptional leadership in helping to navigate an unprecedented global health crisis and sharpening our focus on driving health equity,” and added, “I am thrilled to welcome Tim into his new role and have every confidence that under his guidance, we’ll be well-positioned to advance and expand the critical work already underway.”
