"preventative care"? If people are okay with paying high risk premiums for their poor health habits now, what makes you think people would change their behaviors because government manages the financial side of healthcare? America's obesity rate is ridiculous....how would spreading the costs associated with their healthcare to everyone inspire them to put down their forks?
For an individual who earns $35K per year, fully funding the left's collectivist entitlements -- Social Security and Single Payer -- with payroll taxes would cost roughly $6720 a year. For a household income of $55K (roughly the median), payroll taxes for Social Security and Single Payer would be about $10,560.
This does not include federal taxes levied on income, sales taxes, state income taxes, fuel taxes, property taxes, vehicle registration/value taxes, etc, etc.
Utopia is not cheap.

Preventive care is cheaper and is consistent with the goals of UHC: a healthy population.
The obesity epidemic is serious, and must be fought against Big Ag and Big Food, more than health care, to see any improvements.
