I am sorry, i was not done yet.
Ok, what troubles me is that there is no relationship, according to your question to providing any beneift plan.
however also what is troubling is that your contact with CIGNA is not knowing of any use of this information for CIGNA.
Your CIGNA rep may not be aware that the compnay may be collecting this infomration to find altenrative health care. This kind of information is valuable in dealing with underwriters in finding a cheap insurance coverage, if an employer can justify that current and future claims of its employees will be lower than the general population.
If these are not the reasons for the survey, then the company is at risk for legal challanges, especailly if the information results in terminations.
There are essentially only two legal basis for the company to do this:
1. to gain leverage in the market place for better insurance rates
2. to improve productivity consistent with current research, such that they can in the future implement programs to overcome or prevent health issues.
Tell me this:
Who are they releasing the informration too, again?
What is the stated purpose of the information. exmple: this informatin will be used to.....complete the sentence please.
