(This amendment transfers the funding and authority for administering the Medicaid Intellectual Disability home- and community-based waiver program from the Department of Medical Assistance Services to the Department of Behavioral Health Services. DMAS would retain sole authority for representing the Commonwealth in all Medicaid-related transactions with the federal government and overseeing the administration of all Medicaid-funded services in accordance with the requirements of federal law. Several other states have consolidated budget and operational authority for these services in the agency with program responsibility in order to streamline the policy decision process and create clear lines of responsibility and accountability.)
