States that expand their Medicaid rolls under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act would see only modest increases in their share of the costs when compared with the windfall in federal funding that would come with it.

That’s according to a new report released Monday by the Kaiser Family Foundation that also suggests that some states could net budget savings under the expanded Medicaid rolls, as millions of poor and uninsured people gain coverage.
