Allison O’Toole joins United States of Care from MNsure, Minnesota’s insurance exchange, where she served as CEO. Allison led an aggressive marketing campaign and strategic overhaul of the MNsure operations, customer service, and outreach programs, resulting in three years of record-breaking enrollment, improved customer service and increased system stability.
During her leadership at the exchange, Allison testified twice before Congress, most recently regarding market stabilization before the US Senate HELP committee. She was a leading advocate for Minnesota’s reinsurance program which resulted in immediate and significant premium decreases for Minnesotans in the individual market. She was often a national spokesperson on behalf of state-based exchanges across the country.
Before joining MNsure, Allison was a director at a Minneapolis-based public affairs firm where she specialized in issues management for businesses and organizations primarily in Minnesota. Prior to that, she served as state director for U.S. Senator Amy Klobuchar. Earlier in her career, she spent nearly a decade as a prosecutor, where she prosecuted some of the most violent criminals in the Twin Cities metropolitan area.
Allison received her BA in Political Science and Art History from Franklin and Marshall College in Lancaster, PA. She received her JD from Mitchell Hamline School of Law in St. Paul, MN. She serves on the board of directors at the Greater Minneapolis Crisis Nursery and is an active volunteer for her neighborhood association and high school alumni council.
