In brief: Possibly

There are a variety of safeguards for hospital records but there are shady personnel in any profession.
There are many within the treatment team who must have access to some of the information in your record to seek approval from insurers, post bills, etc.You may be unaware but insurers have access to all of it.Unauthorized disclosure breaks federal law.
