TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) – Kansas Insurance Commissioner Sandy Praeger and the state’s largest health insurance company will hold town hall meetings beginning next week to provide information about the federal health care overhaul.

Praeger has scheduled separate meetings for Monday afternoon and evening at Topeka’s public library.

Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Kansas plans 14 meetings across the state in October and November.

The first of the company’s meetings is Oct. 1 in Lawrence, with a second Oct. 3 in Topeka.

Under the federal law, consumers can begin enrolling Oct. 1 in health plans offered through online insurance marketplaces. Blue Cross is offering coverage on the new exchange.

The exchange for Kansas has been set up by the federal government.
