Long Term International Health Insurance for Preexisting Conditions?

I broke my back a few years ago and suffer from mild paralysis. I found a great job overseas (in Israel) but now I need to find a health insurance plan that covers my pre-existing condition.

I've found one plan that covers me after 24 months of not needing any medical care related to my injury, but considering that my job assignment will be 24 months - it's fairly useless.
I don't generally need any special care for it, but obviously it would be really dumb to not have coverage in case I need it.
One idea that popped into my mind is to buy the aforementioned insurance because it provides great coverage otherwise and then get a special insurance specifically for the preexisting condition.
I'm also looking for a plan that covers mental health (the plan I found only covers it after a year), so bonus points if you can help with that.
