HONOLULU, Dec 23 (Reuters) - President Barack Obama completed a "symbolic" signup for a health insurance plan under the Affordable Care Act over the weekend in advance of Monday's deadline, the White House said.

Obama chose a "bronze" plan in the Washington, D.C., exchange. But like previous U.S. presidents he will continue to receive health care from the military.

Earlier on Monday the Obama administration said it has extended for an extra day the deadline for Americans to choose health insurance plans on the website to ensure coverage starting in January.
