She should reapply as they used to take it away when you reach 65 and get Medicare. Now it is for life. She probably will have to reapply but they will go back and pay some of the copays.

Nice of you to help her.

CHAMPVA and Medicare

Medicare eligibility may affect CHAMPVA eligibility. To retain CHAMPVA benefits beyond your 65th birthday, you must meet one of the following requirements:

Condition 1

Turned 65 before June 5, 2001, and only have Medicare Part A

Condition 2

Turned 65 on or before June 5, 2001 and have Medicare Parts A and B, and will retain both parts in the future.

Condition 3

Turned 65 on or after June 5, 2001 and have Medicare Parts A and B
