Media Release: February 1, 2017


Tuscarawas County Job and Family Services is pleased to announce that it has recently implemented a virtual service center for new Medicaid applications with six other counties in East Central Ohio.

The virtual call center operation brings together the resources of Ashland, Richland, Harrison,
Jefferson, Portage, Tuscarawas, and Washington County Departments of Job and Family Services.
Customers who call the state number at 844-640-OHIO, and live in one of the seven counties
listed, will be routed to the first available customer service agent in any of the seven counties.
The county who takes the call will be able to assist the customer with Medicaid applications.
This process is not available for customers applying for nursing home, waiver, or aged/blind/ or
disabled Medicaid. Those customers should continue to apply through their county job and
family services agency. This virtual call center system allows each county to efficiently utilize
available resources to meet and respond to increases and decreases in caller volume.
