JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - The federal government says several Missouri entities will share up to $1.8 million in grants to help people sign up for insurance through a new online marketplace.

Primaris Healthcare Business Solutions will get more than $1 million to lead a coalition of 11 health care and social service organizations that are supposed to raise awareness about health insurance options.

An additional $750,000 will go to the Missouri Alliance of Area Agencies on Aging for outreach and education efforts.

The Missouri grants are among $67 million being awarded nationally by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to provide "navigators" for participants in health insurance exchanges.

Enrollment through the online marketplaces begins Oct. 1. Missouri's health insurance exchange is being run by the federal government.
