DMAS; waiver eligibility criteria; dependents of active duty military. Directs the Department of Medical Assistance Services to amend eligibility criteria for the Intellectual Disability waiver and the Individual and Family Developmental Disabilities Support waiver to allow the dependent of an active duty military member to maintain his position on the waiting list following a transfer of the active duty military member to an assignment outside of the Commonwealth, so long as the active duty military member maintains the Commonwealth as his legal residence to which he intends to return following completion of military service. In cases in which the dependent becomes eligible for services through the Intellectual Disability waiver or Individual and Family Developmental Disabilities Support waiver prior to returning to the Commonwealth, the individual shall remain on the waiting list for services and shall be eligible for the next waiver slot to become available upon his return to the Commonwealth.
