One of the major gripes about the Affordable Care Act--Obamacare--is that it does not include a public option, a Medicare-style single-payer element. 

Many of the people who like the concept of single-payer health care do not like the concept of for-profit insurance companies. 

There are non-profit insurance co-ops out there, including Health Republic Insurance. 

Health Republic is one of two co-ops in Oregon; few states have two, and California has none.
