Is it preventative or preventive healthcare?

I had to look it up. The Affordable Care Act says "preventive" and I have always said "preventative".

According to Grammar Girl, preventive is preferred by grammar snobs, but both are now considered acceptable.

Now you know, just like me. YAY.

PS: I can NEVER spell Jeapordy right. Ever. I wanted to hum the Jeapordy theme song after the question, but I can’t do it. Jeopardy. There we go. Spelling check can luckily spell it.
