President Barack Obama has signed up for health coverage under Obamacare.
A White House aide said Monday that the president enrolled in a health plan through the Washington, D.C. insurance marketplace over the weekend. He picked a bronze plan, which covers 60 percent of medical costs.
“The act of the President signing up for insurance coverage through the DC exchange is symbolic since the President’s health care will continue to be provided by the military,” the aide said.
Obama will pay premiums for the plan, though, the aide said. The insurance would cover only the president, not his wife or children, and the premium will be less than $400 per month.
