A4: There isn't any medical care for your spouse through the VA per say. What is available to the spouse of a 100% disable Veteran is ChampVA. This is a life saver for those who qualify. Under Medicare pay 80% and then the ChampVA pays the other 20% leaving us without paying any copays at all. All you do is submit the ChampVA forms that should have come with your 100% award letter. If not have computer access google ChampVA and print the form mail or fax to Denver Colorado. (GR) 11/27/19
