Good answers, Julee and UC Dude.
I suspect you could be getting passed over not because they're concerned about
your ability to do the job, but because they're worried about
what a person with any illness may do to their health insurance costs. This has become a huge issue for employers over the past ten years, as they know sometimes hiring one person with a chronic illness can raise rates for everyone. Because of the restrictions on what can be asked, they may just select out anyone who seems to have any sort of health problems.
