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.

The consequences of not doing preventative health care leads to death & hospitalization that certainly costs more than doing nothing.
A 2004 study showed that about half of all deaths in the United States in 2000 were due to preventable behaviors and exposures.[4] Leading causes included cardiovascular disease, chronic respiratory disease, unintentional injuries, diabetes, and certain infectious diseases.[4]
