The article discusses a study conducted by the Urban Institute in Washington D.C. in December 2010 titled "Net Effects of the Affordable Care Act on State Budgets." The study claims that the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act can help states save significantly. According to the researchers, the law will require states to increase their spending on Medicaid coverage for low-income adults, but those costs will be greatly outweighed by potential state savings.
