Hola

Have you checked Pacific Blue Cross? Their head office is in Burnaby - no problems with any US affiliations. We get their year-round travel coverage, but have not had to make a claim yet (knock on wood), I have found them to be very helpful over the phone - and I would imagine that they should be able to provide you with information regarding coverage for whatever your preexisting conditions are.

Cheers

There are credit cards that also have the option of Medical insurance attached to them. And as long as it is not an American card - our's covers us in Cuba.
