|insurance premium increase
Jun 1, 2015
If I switch to a smaller workplace in California of say less than 50 people, would I (due to HIV meds etc) cause a big hike to my new employer's health insurance? If so, my concern is that it would be pretty easy for my new employer to figure out I'm the cause of the big premium increase. Thanks in advance.

It would depend on what insurance the employer has. I seriously doubt that it is self-funded, which might be a problem in rare instances.
I don't know of any insurance carrier that still experience rates groups that small, although it was done in the past. As long as your group's experience is pooled with lots of other groups, which I believe it will be, there is no way the employer will know about your claims.
