CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — A state board chaired by Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval has approved a $6 million contract to market the state's health insurance exchange program.

The Board of Examiners on Tuesday approved the contract with KPS 3 Inc. Funding for the marketing and outreach campaign comes from the federal government.

Nevada last week received preliminary approval from the federal government for its health insurance exchange program, called for under the federal Affordable Care Act. The Silver State Insurance Exchange is designed to help individuals and small businesses obtain health insurance as required under the law.

Nevada's program is expected to begin enrollment Oct. 1, with policies taking effect Jan. 1, 2014.
