We demonstrate that, according to a recently suggested Lorentz-force approach to the Casimir effect, the vacuum force on an atom embedded in a material cavity differs substantially from the force on an atom of the cavity medium. The force on an embedded atom is of the familiar van der Waals and Casimir-Polder type, however, more strongly modified by the cavity medium than usually considered. The force on an atom of the cavity medium is of the medium-assisted force type with rather unusual properties, as demonstrated very recently M. S. Tomas, Phys. Rev. A 71, 060101R 2005. This implies similar properties of the vacuum force between two atoms in a medium.
