COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - Three South Carolina groups are receiving a total of $2 million to help South Carolinians sign up for insurance under the federal health care law.

U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius announced winning recipients Thursday of the Navigator grants. The $67 million went to 105 organizations in states that are letting the federal government run their online insurance marketplaces.

South Carolina is receiving $750,000 more than the federal agency previously said it set aside for community groups in the state.

The largest grant of more than $1.2 million goes to DECO Recovery Management, which is working with the Benefit Bank of South Carolina for marketing and education. The Cooperative Ministry is receiving $508,000 to target eight rural counties. The Beaufort County Black Chamber of Commerce is receiving $234,000.
