President Obama urged supporters Tuesday to help people sign up for health care coverage as his new law approaches a key deadline at the end of next month.

"March 31st - that's the last call," Obama told members of Organizing for Action, a group formed from the remnants of his presidential campaigns.

"If folks aren't signed up by March 31st, they can't sign up again until the next open enrollment period with the 2015 rates," Obama reminded his backers. "So if they want health insurance now, they need to sign up now."

The administration will "make a big push" in the next several weeks to promote the new health care law, Obama said, but "it's not going to make as much of a difference as if you are out there making the case."

Obama said that, since the law came on line in October, about 4 million people have signed up for health insurance though federal or state marketplaces.

The White House once set an unofficial goal of 7 million enrollees by the March 31 deadline.
