If self-employed, collecting Social Security and covered by spouse’s health insurance policy, can Medicare Part B premiums be deducted on Schedule C as self-employed health insurance?

No. That's not where you deduct self-employed health insurance anyway, but even on the right line (Adjusted Gross Income on page 1 of the 1040) Medicare premiums don't count.
