MILWAUKEE -- President Barack Obama will visit Milwaukee this week to celebrate the city's sign-ups under the Affordable Care Act.
Milwaukee won a competition among 20 cities to increase the number of enrollees under the latest health insurance marketplace open enrollment period.
Obama will speak at the United Community Center, 1028 S 9th Street.
The White House announced in February that Milwaukee won the "Healthy Communities Challenge."
About 38,000 people in the Milwaukee area newly selected a plan through the health insurance marketplace during the latest open enrollment period. Altogether, about 89,000 people in the Milwaukee area selected a 2016 marketplace plan.
