You need to call the VA to see what you may be entitled to. In the military the spouses aren't allowed benefits. Husband was in the Military not you. A friend had to work until she was 65 for healthcare and could collect Medicare. Her husband was able to use a VA hospital she wasn't.

Aides and Attendance can only be gotten if the Vet was in the military during a war. It can't be gotten if ur on Medicaid. It is not easy to get especially if you don't have the paperwork needed. I thought my Mom was a shoe in but got denied. Since by that time Mom was almost on Medicaid, I chose not to go on with it.
