Nationwide, 9.5 million consumers are signed up for 2015 healthcare coverage under the president's health care law, exceeding the Obama Administration's enrollment target of 9.1 million.

According to a report released by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, more than 7.1 million people have signed up in the 37 states using healthcare.gov.  

More than two million have signed up on the 14 Obamacare exchanges run by individual states, including Washington, D.C.

Both new and returning customers are included in the enrollment report. 

The last day to enroll for 2015 coverage is Feb. 15. 

If you miss the deadline, you can't sign up for a health plan inside or outside the marketplace for the rest of the year unless you quality for a special enrollment period.
