President Obama is set to make his first appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show since he was elected. 

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the president will appear via a live shot from the White House as a part of his big push to get people to sign up for health insurance before the March 31 deadline. 

The White House has been making rounds to promote Obamacare, including spots on Ryan Seacrest's radio show, a comedic showdown with Zach Galifianakis on Between Two Ferns and the release of a video with celebrity moms pitching the benefits of healthcare. 

New figures suggest that the White House's efforts have been working. A last-minute surge has seen the number of people signed up for coverage reach five million.

POTUS' appearance is slated for the March 20 episode of Ellen.
