Medicare and the Affordable Care Act
Your Medicare coverage is protected.
Medicare is NOT part of the Health Insurance Marketplace established by the ACA, so you don't have to replace your Medicare coverage with Marketplace coverage. No matter how you get Medicare, whether through Original Medicare or a Medicare Advantage Plan, you'll still have the same benefits and security you have now.
You don't need to do anything with the Marketplace during Open Enrollment.
Beware of Fraud
If you are enrolled in Medicare and receive a call stating you need to enroll in the Marketplace, it may be fraud. Learn how to protect yourself from fraud.
