How do I get health insurance for my Eastern European mother-in-law?

My wife's mom is a widow of advancing age. She lives alone in Eastern Europe, in a country with universal health care. (More or less... thanks, austerity!) As she is getting older, we're starting to worry about her living over there, both because of quality of care and because the day that she's no longer suited to live by herself seems approaching. We live in the US and would like to bring her over here permanently. Putting aside immigration questions, how do we get health insurance for her?

Can we add her to our plan somehow? Can she get Social Security, even though she never worked here in the US? Are there specialized programs for this situation?
