Depends upon the country of origin, they can get GC based on the visa bulletin given below in family category:
Visa Bulletin For July 2012

You have to start the process by filing I-130 and when priority date becomes current, you can file for their I-485 or through counselor process in respective embassy. (I assume the current time period varies from 3-7 yrs).

After GC, they have to be in the US to satisfy resident requirement for N-400 (which is 5 years of continuous resident status less 90 days ). They need to pass the citizenship test followed by oath to become a citizen.

Thanks

You need to consult visa bulletin to come up with ballpark timeline it will take to get GC for your parents.

Regarding insurance, check PCIP - Pre-existing Condition Insurance Plan - Home. Its for people with pre-existing condition. My mom had heart attack in May 2012. Then we took this insurance in June 2012. This is really good, Thanks to President Obama. Check the site for couple of conditions.

A citizen applying for his/her parents does not have to worry about the visa bulletin neither is it entirely country dependent. There are unlimited visa numbers for a citizens' parent (just like spouse).

How long it takes depends on the processing times for I-30.

If you are applying for a green card with them staying in the US during processing, then you have to apply for I 485, so youll need to add the processing time for a 485.

if you are applying with them abroad, then you have to do consular processing, and the time taken will depend on how long the embassy in your home takes to give an interview date and process a green card.
