Because of Obamacare far fewer of those people will get sick, or if they do their illnesses will be found much sooner and thus cost far less to treat. That is the whole point of the ACA. It is bending the cost curve for healthcare in America whether or not Obamahaters will admit it.

Having insurance doesn't cause people to not get sick and the cost of healthcare could have been dealt with without mandated healthcare. Competition across states in the insurance market, competition to drug companies outside the US, more general practitioners instead of specialist, and dealing with hospitals charging to much would have went way further at reducing the cost for everyone. Obamacare is not all bad but it didn't focus enough, if at all, in the areas that would have reduced cost.
