An address is intended to describe postal addresses for administrative purposes, not to describe absolute geographical coordinates. Postal addresses are often used as proxies for physical locations.
The text element specifies the entire address as it should be displayed e.g. on a postal label. This may be provided instead of or as well as the specific parts. Applications updating an address shall ensure that when both text and parts are present, no content is included in the text that is not found in a part.
Address is used in the following places:
– Claim Response
– Explanation of Benefit
– Insurance Plan
– Related Person
