Usually co-insurance has to be applied for for your wife and may depend on a number of factors, and this coverage is not usually permitted for consideration in relation to residency. Your best bet might be to go to the WGKK to one of their service centres here in Vienna, with proof of earnings and a marriage certificate. On some occasions they might refuse it, or require payment to ensure co-insurance.
Vienna is like an Ikea sofa - you know you should upgrade, but why bother when it is this comfortable.
