I have been awarded 100% unemployability due to a service connected disability. Total and permanent. Does this qualify my wife for CHAMPVA? As of now, I pay $650 a month out of my OPM pension for her health insurance.

Yes, she is eligible for CHAMPVA. You should get notice in your benefit awards package or at your eBenefits account. CHAMPVA is great health insurance although working with the CHAMPVA office requires persistence and patience. Once you figure out how it works she'll enjoy the benefit.
