Poor. I've had need to interact with this agency twice about my adopted son's medicaid benefit. Both times were a monumental waste of time for what turned out to be relatively easy fixes. Unresponsive, won't return phone calls, run-around/pass-around games, not a single call back in two months of trying which means I'll have to waste another half-day of work to go over there in person.

This is the worst place ever. If you call you will never talk to a live person only a recording that send you to voicemail. Noone ever call back when you leave a voice message. My daughter is two and can not get her shots if she doesnt get medicaid benefits and its been 3 months and all i have been getting is letters about my case manager changed and no calls back this place need to be shut down because they dont do anything to help people when they can its just sad
