Good morning Deborah,
I'm Doug, and I'm very sorry to hear of your situation. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today. I have been a licensed attorney for more than 3 decades. Please don't confuse excellent service with a satisfactory outcome based on your wants and desires. I can only explain the law to you---not guarantee that you will be happy with the outcome---any more than a cancer surgeon can guarantee a cure.
Unfortunately, you folks have missed the open enrollment periods for both Medicare as well as your company's health plan and Obamacare policies as well.
Under Obamacare, open Enrollment for 2017 runs from November 1, 2016 to January 31, 2017. Your company's own healthcare policy will probably have a Fall open enrollment period as well and you can enroll him at that time in your policy. If your company's open enrollment period is in October/November of each year---as is typical of a number of private employer based policies---then you can enroll him immediately. Otherwise you have no option but to wait until November 1 to enroll him in an Obamacare plan which will be effective the first of the year. And if you are not willing to pay the exorbitant price for an Obamacare policy, you will have to apply for Medicare right now, knowing that coverage is delayed.
Aside from these options, you have no option to qualify him for any health insurance policy by November 1 of this year. I am sorry.
I understand that you may be disappointed by the Answer you received, as it was not particularly favorable to your situation. Had I been able to provide an Answer which might have given you a successful legal outcome, it would have been my pleasure to do so.
If you have additional questions, you may of course reply back to me and I will be happy to continue to assist you further until your questions have been answered to your satisfaction.
Would you please take a moment to positively rate my service to you based on the understanding of the law I provided by clicking on the rating stars---three stars or more. It is that easy. That is the way I am compensated for having helped you.
Thank you in advance. I wish you the best in your future,
