Forget it.

From what I hear, Cyprus actually verifies that EU citizens living there meet the Freedom of Movement requirements. Newly arrived EU citizens have no right to welfare and Cyprus is not required to admit a spouse if welfare benefits are required.
So do you need to have a spouse from Cyprus?

Having a Cypriot spouse would be a different matter as that would fall under Cypriot domestic immigration law, not EU freedom of movement.

The point here is, that the EEA spouse needs to be exercising treaty rights (working, studying full time, being self-employed or self-sufficient) to be able to stay beyond 90 days.

There are concessions in EU law for nationals who became unable to work due to health reasons after having worked in the host country for some time (and not a few days) to retain worker status.

Arriving in an EU host country and being unable to work from the get go will not fly, especially if state benefits are needed.

Depending on the nature of the disability/health condition, it may or may not be possible to continue receiving payments from the EEA national's home country, in case of a pension due to permanent inability to work or such. If that's the case, that may or may not be counted as being self-sufficient, depending on how much is being paid.

If you are in receipt of benefits from your home country that are sufficient to support you and your partner or you have sufficient income from investments etc you will be able to get a visa for your partner.
However if you do not have sufficient income you will not be entitled to any benefits from Cyprus if you have not lived and worked here previously. You cannot simply arrive and expect to get financial assistance.
