TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) – Kansas Insurance Commissioner Sandy Praeger is planning five more town hall meetings in October to discuss the federal health care overhaul.

Praeger has had nine sessions this month. She plans two more in Topeka on Monday, one day before the opening of an online health insurance marketplace for Kansas. The marketplace is being run by the federal government under its 2010 health care law.

Praeger’s additional meetings are set for Oct. 2 in Independence; Oct. 4 in Emporia; Oct. 16 in Garden City; Oct. 17 in Liberal; and Oct. 22 in Kansas City, Kan.

Enrollment in plans offered by the online marketplace runs through March 2014, and many consumers are eligible for federal subsidies.
