Medicare widows benefits

A widow, who doesn't have enough credits on her own for Medicare, wonders if she would qualify for medicare coverage on her husbands record when she turns 65. The husband had enough credits on his own record, but passed away before the age of 65. I think she will be eligible for Medicare, but I'm not sure.
