Why is that obvious? Research has shown that with the exception of vaccines and a few other things, preventative care costs more than doing nothing.

Really?

We've found that just going to a doctor early when you have symptoms without having to worry about costs improves outcomes and reduces costs when they have to send an ambulance.

One of the things my province does is to give insulin to diabetics free for those without private insurance which is far cheaper than sending an ambulance to pick them off the floor of the Mall bathroom?
