Hi, my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will do my best to help,
" I was wondering how confidential my information is that I provide. I was recently married to a woman that I know my boss doesn't approve of and was wondering if he would have access to my information?"
The forms you fill out in order to enroll in a medical benefits plan are confidential and the employee and the department which are responsible for conveying this information to the health insurance carrier are required to protect the confidentiality of this information. Being a CEO does not give the individual the right to look at the private medical information and histories of the employees. There is no reason that I can think of off hand why a CEO would look into your files and read this confidential information. If he ever does request to look at your files without reason, he will have breached your rights to privacy and you will find out eventually.
I have just told you how things are supposed to be. Asking an outsider, "How secure are my files" is really not a question that anybody outside of your company can answer. But, I am sure that the CEO has enough to do without snooping into employees' personal medical information files,
