Yes, as a citizen you can file for your parents. In the past getting regular insurance was expensive (lack of history in the US) and new GC holders were not eligible for Medicaid immediately. However now with ACA/Obamacare the options for new GC holders may be better.

I would be interested to learn about the experience of folks who are trying to get insurance through the new health insurance exchanges (in the states that have set them up). Thanks!

The eligibility for Medicare/Medicaid has not changed with the ACA.
