With the April enrollments we met 15% of the total yearly goal; per CMS this was the minimum they were looking for from all grantees, and not all of the other grantees have met that goal. In our call with CMS on 5/10/22, Janice Adams, Technical Director for the Division of State Coverage Programs offered a lot of praise of ESAHEC’s efforts to turn around the program that was seriously struggling last year
