I don't completely disagree with that. Just pointing out that the statistic shown were misleading.

One other problem still remains. It just like PMs on HVAC equipment. "pay me now or pay me more later". You can either choose to provide preventative can continue to let these people get really sick and use the ER as indigent patients... that all those who are insured, pay for. Hospitals have to pass the costs on to someone. Might as well spend those resources instead on preventative care. The question is, how could you implement that fairly and efficiently?
