What will the plan do to support prevention & wellness?

Five percent of the population uses up fifty percent of the healthcare dollars. The other 95% are relatively healthy. Physicians, patient advocates, and public health officials all agree that enormous amounts of acute care is avoidable through healthier behaviors, yet insurance actuaries and employers say the ROI of wellness is "hard to prove"?

What new initiatives will the Obama plan include to help people stay healthier and avoid medical care, and incent payors, employers, and medical professionals to go along?
