Former vice president Joe Biden released a plan Monday to expand the Affordable Care Act with a public option, separating himself from his progressive rivals who have endorsed various versions of a single-payer "Medicare for All" system.

To lower drug prices and create competition, Biden said, he would allow Medicare to negotiate prices with drug companies and would give people the ability to buy prescription drugs from other countries. "But folks supporting it should be clear that it means getting rid of Obamacare, and I'm not for that", Biden, who was Obama's vice president for eight years, said in a video.

Democratic presidential hopefuls, including Sens.

Bennet and Sen. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota are among the moderates arguing that a public option is the next logical move, even for single-payer advocates. Eric Swalwell of California and Seth Moulton of MA, former Reps.

Some Democratic White House hopefuls are joining Biden in advocating for the public option, arguing it will be hard to go much further. Beto O'Rourke of Texas and John Delaney of Maryland, former Washington Gov. Jay Inslee, former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julián Castro, Montana Gov. Steve Bullock and self-help author Marianne Williamson, have also embraced a public option. The thinking goes that a candidate who would appeal to numerous voters who supported Trump in 2016, but would be lured back to Democrats in 2020, wouldn't support a progressive platform such as one pushed by Bernie Sanders, Kamala Harris, or Elizabeth Warren.

Such a plan - "Medicare for All" alongside private health insurance - has received support from Reps.

Indeed, the road to universal coverage in the US has been long and complicated. Biden has spent the past several weeks on defense, reversing his position on taxpayer funding for abortions and highlighting his past work with segregationist senators. Studies have found that the ACA caused fewer people to struggle with medical bills; avoid or delay treatment because of cost; and that medical debt has declined. President Trump and his allies are looking to counter with attacks casting Medicare-for-all as a scary takeover of the health-care system that would be detrimental to many Americans, a line of attack that worries some Democrats.

"How many of you like your employer-based health care?". The U.S. also remains an outlier among developed countries by not having universal health insurance.

Sanders, who has been running second in many opinion polls to Biden, responded in a statement that he had fought to pass and improve Obamacare and protect the Affordable Care Act from Republican efforts to repeal it.

Under his plan, Biden said, people could opt to purchase a private option plan like Medicare that would also reduce costs for patients by negotiating lower prices from hospitals and other health care providers.

Biden, who was instrumental in helping President Barack Obama pass the Affordable Care Act (ACA), made the promise during an AARP forum in Iowa when discussing how his "public option" proposal differed from Medicare for All.
