Default insurance ?

Does anybody know what the difference is between
Medicare Part A
Medicare Part B
CommonWealth Care
CommonWealth Choice

The reason why I am asking is I was unemployed and now my unemployment ran out so I don't have the options of Cobra or MSP.

I called around and they said the only options for me would probably be
MassHealth or CommonWealth options.
But I wanted to know the difference in coverage and price rates.

If anybody knows about health insurance any help would be great.

To get Medicare you need to be 65 years old.
part "A" comes automatically
part "B" is optional, but you have to pay for it.
Medicaid is for people with low income but has special requirements .

The others I am not familiar with.

Is Medicare part "B" the part with the pharmaceuticals? So that can be waived? If so, can it be picked back up at any time?
