By: Roxie Graham-Marski Posted at: 05/10/2013 10:44 AM
     PIERRE, S.D. (ASSOCIATED PRESS) - About $554,000 in federal funding is being made available to six South Dakota health centers so they can help uninsured people find health insurance coverage under the federal health overhaul law.
     The centers eligible to apply for the funds are the City of Sioux Falls Health Department, Community Health Center of the Black Hills in Rapid City, Horizon Health Care of Howard, Prairie Community Health of Isabel, Rural Health Care of Fort Pierre and the Union County Health Foundation of Elk Point.
     The funding is part of a national effort to help uninsured people get health insurance.
     Officials say the money will allow the health centers to hire new staff, train existing staff and conduct activities to help people understand their options for getting private health insurance or Medicaid coverage.
