Some states suing to toss out President Barack Obama's health care overhaul law are also lining up to claim a share of its subsidies for the medical costs of retired employees.

An administration official says seven states suing the federal government applied for and will receive subsidies to help with health care costs of early retirees. They are Arizona, Idaho, Indiana, Louisiana, Michigan, Nebraska and Nevada. The official spoke on condition of anonymity ahead of Tuesday's official announcement.

About 2,000 employers have already been approved for the extra help, mainly private businesses. The list includes about half of the Fortune 500 companies. The health care law provides $5 billion to help employers maintain retiree coverage.
