HELENA, Mont. (AP) — Planned Parenthood and two other groups have been awarded federal grants to help uninsured Montanans sign up for subsidized, private coverage under the health-care overhaul law.

Lee Newspapers of Montana reports Planned Parenthood of Montana will receive $295,000 to hire and train “navigators” to tell people their options in signing up for insurance under the Affordable Care Act.

The Montana Primary Care Association was awarded $299,400 and the Montana Health Network will receive $143,000.

Planned Parenthood has several health clinics around the state. The Montana Primary Care Association represents the state’s 30 federally funded health and satellite clinics, while the Montana Health Network is a cooperative serving small hospitals in eastern Montana.

The grants were announced Thursday by the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
