Emphatically, NO.

Regardless of what kind of health insurance information it may be, it is
personal and highly confidential. In some cases, you might also be violating HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) laws/regulations.

But even if you would not be doing so, under no circumstances share such information on one employee with another employee EVER.
