COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Supporters of President Barack Obama’s health care law are making their final push this weekend to enroll Ohioans in coverage ahead of key deadline.

Open enrollment to purchase health plans in the federally run insurance marketplace ends Sunday.

Health care advocates are holding sign-up events in churches, health agencies and other facilities as they anticipate a surge of interest from consumers because of the deadline.

Federal officials said earlier this week that 208,602 Ohio residents had selected health plans or were automatically re-enrolled for coverage this year.

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services says that 84 percent of those signing up were eligible for advanced premium tax credits.
