BATON ROUGE -- Miss Louisiana 2013 Jaden Leach told a group of young adults Saturday to consider getting health insurance.
It was part of a Blue Cross Blue Shielf of Lousiana information event in Baton Rouge, which helped provide answers to consumers about the details of the Affordable Care Act.
Statistics that show young adults over 26 often delay obtaining health insurance.
Miss Louisiana visited and signed autographs during the session.
The Affordable Care Act allows young people 26 and under to stay on their parents health insurance but after that each person will be required to have health insurance or be subject to an IRS fine.
