Herb worked with programs that were aggregated into one Social Services Division for improved effectiveness and efficiency, including: medicaid management (running the payment system to providers), "disability determinations" (which had many hundreds of people determining whether applicants for federal disability under social security were medically eligible), and the office for the blind and visually handicapped.
