At what cost?
If you don't think more people getting preventative care will stop, or at least slow, the health care issues in America what is the point?
To clean up your ledger?
I go back to this: "You may work your little numbers in a way that says "$800,000 because he had a stroke when he could have gone for a check-up for $100" but there's no guarantee, AT ALL, that he doesn't have a stroke anyway. People go to the doctor, doctor says "Stop smoking", patient buys a carton of Camels on the way home. Sure, a doctor visit might do some people some good because they'll do what they're told. But, by and large, people don't like being told what to do. You'd know this if you ever dealt with people.
