Do you have to tell an employer that you have ms if you are just starting a job? I will be in the process of looking for a new job soon and don't know if I should include this in " any reason you would not be able to complete your duties" ?
If I don't will this come back to bite me when I go to use the medical ins. provided by the company or any of the disability? Not saying this would be the case but I want to be sure.

NO, you don't have to tell them unless of course your disability is obvious and you need accomodations up front. If will go the ADA pages, they will provide a more complete answer. I didn't qualify for health insurance due to another medical condition and it did not affect my employment status.

My employer knows because of the extended absences needed an explanation.

Good luck,
