Can anything in the US healthcare system be done to help a disabled wife whose husband has health


insurance but refuses to provide her with health insurance (even via Affordable Care Act insurance exchanges), medical care, or dental care? He earns too much money for her to receive Medicaid, Social Security Disabilty, SSI, Food Stamps or Public Assistance Cash Benefits or any other type of govt. help. She did not work the 40 quarters required for SSDI or Social Security Retirement and needs to wait for him to retire in order to gain any retirement income herself, using his SS account. She has no income and cannot do any type of work because of immobililty, pain, heavy medication. Thanks!

    Thanks for the information. So far, it really looks as if divorce is the only way. I'll pass that on.
