To put this article in perspective, most drug treatments are still secondary or tertiary prevention and should be balanced with primary prevention approaches. Primary prevention through health education and behavior change are still more cost effective. More incentives are needed in private and public health plans to drive health plans and individuals towards primary prevention. There are some good examples out there -- disease management programs, U.S. Preventive Medicine, some of the Affordable Care Act provisions, etc. -- but more is needed. It's even better to remove the need the drugs in the first place when possible.
