“The research is already out there about what is preventable, and we’re not even acting on it. Why not? We’re only paying for treatment, and why shouldn’t we be paying for prevention? And I think the private sector gets that, and so insurance companies understand it, and certainly the government understands it, but it’s a cost.”
