When you visit a doctor in Korea, is the information kept confidential? What about the health insurance companies? Do they notify your employer?

Um....not particularly but it is becoming more of an issue these days. I had to have a physical exam and checked out fine. However, the medical report was sent to my school, vice principal, principal and nurse...sheesh.

That is what I thought! Japan is just as bad about this. There is no such thing as privacy.

When I had to get a medical to teach at the elementary school the results got sent to my employer. Not a copy, I did not even see my results, they were sent direct to the office. Shocked
