MILWAUKEE (AP) - President Barack Obama visits 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 is scheduled to travel to Milwaukee on Thursday and speak at the United Community Center.

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.
