Authorizes an individual who is otherwise eligible for Medi-Cal home-and community-based services (HCBS) to enroll for those services if the individual is a dependent child or spouse of an active duty military service member and either the military service member receives a military order to transfer to another state or the individual was receiving similar Medicaid HCBS in their last state of residence. HCBS generally provide opportunities for Medicaid beneficiaries to receive services in their own home or community rather than institutions or other isolated settings.
