Welcome to the CDX Technologies June 2018 Newsletter


We've added a new feature to all versions of CDXZipStream for address correction and ZIP+4 data by linking our CDXGeodata web service. Also covered are new demographic items tailored for the medical and insurance industries.


Here is our latest blog posting -


New Demographic Data Items


We've added new items to our premium demographic ZIP Code database which should prove especially useful for the Medical and Insurance Industries. The data is determined by Social Security and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMMS) based as of January 2018:


1. SSAStateCountyCode - The State County Code as set by the Social Security Administration for Medicare and Medicaid.


2.MedicareCBSACode - The CBSA Code for this ZIP Code as set by the CMMS.


3.MedicareCBSAName - The CBSA Name for this ZIP Code as set by CMMS.


4. MedicareCBSAType - The CBSA type for this ZIP Code as set by CMMS. Metro or Micro.


5. MarketRatingAreaID - The ID of the Insurance Market Rating Area as set by CMMS.


Also an additional item for general purpose use:


6. CountyMixedCase - The primary county name in mixed case


New CDXZip4 Function with CDXGeoData


A new function called CDXZip4 is now part of CDXZipStream and provides address correction and USPS ZIP+4 approved formatting using our CDXGeoData web service.  Available in all versions of CDXZipStream with a CDXGeoData API key, you can now perform address verification and correction using U.S. Postal Service databases. Get address data in standard format and find ZIP+4 Codes even for addresses with missing data.


The CDXZip4 function can be used by right-clicking on any cell in your worksheet and selecting "Insert CDXZip4 Function" from the new CDXGeoData Functions drop-down menu.  Provide the input address information as either a single-line or multiple-line address.  Multiple-line input will look like this:




To gain access to this functionality you must have a CDXGeoData API Key which is not part of the CDXZipStream license.  Tokens are used to access CDXGeoData with different levels for each service request.  This ZIP+4 address verification will require 5 tokens per request.  Any number of users can access the CDXGeodata service with a single API key.  You must update your installations with the latest CDXZipStream demo installation to have access to this feature.


A free CDXGeoData account comes with 1000 tokens that can be used for evaluation, development and non-profit use. Additional tokens can be purchased on an as-needed basis with the following pricing.  The tokens are good for up to one year.   It's easy and risk-free to get started with our free account.
