I remember from when we first joined the IMSS system about 7 years ago that you had to report any preexisting conditions on the application papers. Then those would not be covered for the first 1 to 3 years (depending on what they were.) This info is pretty stale, and I don't have the time to research the whole initial application process as it exists today.
You can search this message board and the Melaque Tomzap board, along with the official IMSS site (Spanish): http://www.imss.gob.mx/ This site is pretty confusing, though.
Keep in mind that anyone with permanent or temporary immigration status can joion the free Jalisco health system and use the Centro de Salud(s). Cruz has done this if you are looking for recent info.
