A:

If you're currently eligible for Medicare or most other federal programs, you'll be eligible to enroll and subject to the premium if your income is 200% of the FPL or more prior to federal funding waivers for each program and if you earn income through an employer operating in Washington, your pay will be subject to the health risk assessment. For Medicare, your enroll in the plan the same way you enroll in a Medicare Advantage plan prior to waivers being approved. Once waivers for these programs federal funds are granted these individuals wouldn't be subject to the premium, a lower premium, or the board could lower everyone's premiums for adults over 200% based on the administrative savings from integration of each program.
