Medicare has four primary parts, and coverage, costs and enrollment vary for each. Medicare Part A refers to hospital insurance, which covers things such as hospitalization, hospice care, limited skilled nursing facility care, blood and home health care. Medicare Part B refers to medical insurance for items like routine doctor's visits and outpatient procedures. Medicare Part A is free for most beneficiaries, and the standard monthly cost for Medicare Part B in 2013 is $104.90. Medicare Part C, also called Medicare Advantage, refers to plans offered by private insurance companies that cover Part A and Part B benefits. Medicare Part D is an optional prescription drug plan provided by private companies.

Part A is Hospitalization and B is Doctor visits.

Anyone who has Medicare Part B.

Medicare part A = Hospital and Facility coverage Medicare part B = Professional (doctors and specialists) coverage Medicare part D = Rx Medicare part C = Part A B D combined After part C refers to supplement plans

Please explain your question more thoroughly if my answer does not suffice. I am unsure of what you mean by Medicare Carve Out Coverage. You can buy a Medicare Supplement at any time once you have received your Medicare Part A and Part B. If you do not enroll within 6 months of your Part B effective date you would be subject to underwriting. You can not join a Medicare Supplement if you already have a Medicare Advantage Plan as this is not allowed by Centers for Medicare. You would be required to drop your Medicare Advantage Plan prior to the Medicare Supplement effective date. If you had coverage through an employer, you would not need Medicare Supplement coverage as your employer coverage would be primary and then Medicare would be secondary for your out-of-pocket costs covered by Medicare.

Medicare Part A covers hospital services. Medicare Part B covers services by other providers such as physicians.

Medicare Part B does not cover Chiropractic services. These types of services are considered non traditional medicine. Requests to be seen by a chiropractor are generally turned down by a primary chare physician.

no, you only have to have EITHER Part A OR Part B to get Part D. You can get Part D if you only have Part A.

You can get prescription drug coverage (or Medicare Part D) through Medicare ... If, at any point, you drop Medicare Part D and have a break in coverage, restrictions will apply.

The Medicare Modernization Act of 2003 (MMA) provided for a special enrollment period for Medicare Part B for TRICARE beneficiaries who have Medicare Part A.

The "T" usually represents a status like 'Temporary' it's not associated with Part B. Part B. The partB would be present on the Medicare card below the Medicare ID number and below Part A.
