Is there anything that consumers and their dependents who are already on Medicare and employer-based coverage need to do because of the ACA?

Generally, there's nothing consumers need to do because of the ACA if they're already on Medicare and have employer-based coverage. If consumers have coverage through an employer, and that employer's current benefits pay first and Medicare pays second, the ACA doesn't change that.

If the employer changes the benefits that cover consumers or their dependents, then they will send consumers a notice about those changes. Consumers can ask their employers' human resources department how those changes work with Medicare.
