The answer is a definate YES. I have worked in employee benefits since 1993. I have worked for a large insurance company in the past, and yes employers find out who has large claims and potential outlooks on conditions (for future claim costs and for reinsurance purposes). HIPPA laws you say? Well, it's okay if the employer has a business partner agreement with the insurance carrier or third party administrator.
