What is the date format for the Healthcare Finder API? I could not locate the answer in the API Schema.

Is it "Year - Day - Month" or "Year - Month - Day"


Short answer: "Year-Month-Day", or CCYY-MM-DD

Longer answer: The Healthcare Finder API uses XML Schema to define the API schema..

So a line like <xs:element name="InsuranceEffectiveDate" type="xs:date"/> indicates that you should format the value according to XML Schema. This is a reference page for the date type

(the reference to xsd:date on the linked page instead of xs:date as specified in the API schema document is a minor style choice, and not a cause for concern.)
