Here is a crosswalk of applicant demographic questions that are being considered for inclusion in the application for health insurance through the California Health Benefits Exchange, California’s state health insurance exchange being established under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.  The crosswalk includes the demographic questions currently asked in California’s Medicaid, Children’s Health Insurance Program, and Pre-Existing Condition Insurance Program applications.  Given that each of the questions are asked slightly differently in these three programs, there is an opportunity for the state health insurance exchange to standardize these demographic questions across all of California’s public health insurance programs, as well as encourage harmonization of practices in the commercial health insurance market.
