8. Medicare Supplement (medi-gap) is for Parts A & B.
Part D is separate and for prescriptions/meds only.

I have my Medicare Supplement from one insurance company and Part D from another insurance company.

Now, someone else will need to explain the difference between Medicare Advantage and Medicare Supplement/Part D coverage as it is a different animal.
