I have borderline personality disorder, and though I haven’t told any of my colleagues or my manager, it is significantly affecting my ability to do my job. I need time to seek help and get back on track. If I make a claim to my insurance benefits, will they disclose my diagnosis to my employer?

Disability Benefits - Question 89
Any claim that is submitted to an insurer is supposed to maintain your confidentiality with respect to sensitive personal and medical information. You can discuss your concerns in this regard with the claims representative at the insurance company. Unfortunately, there is no iron-clad guarantee that your privacy or confidentiality will be totally respected but your employer is not, strictly speaking, entitled to full disclosure of your medical problems, although they are entitled to information to confirm your inability to work.
