Eligibility: To be eligible for CHAMPVA, an individual cannot be el- igible for TRICARE (the medical program for civilian dependents pro- vided by the Department of Defense) and must be one of the following: 1. The spouse or child of a Veteran whom VA has rated pennanently and totally disabled due to a service-connected disability. 2. The surviving spouse or child of a Veteran who died from a CA-rat- ed service-connected disability, or who, at the time of death, was rated permanently and totally disabled. 3. The smviving spouse or child of a Veteran who died on active duty service and in the line of duty, not due to nlisconduct.
