National Health Insurance Scheme



The National Health Insurance Authority (NHIA) has developed a dedicated NHIS USSD based service for its members. This service can be accessed by dialing an easy to remember short code, *842*10#, from any MTN or Vodafone number and is expected to be available on all networks in due course.


The NHIA service code - *842*10#, can be used by NHIS members to check the status of their NHIS Membership Eligibility, NHIS Bene?t Package and NHIS Medicines List. NHIA is also testing the option to allow members to complete their annual membership renewals comfortably and safely from their mobile phones by using this code. The NHIS mobile membership renewal service will be launched soon and rolled out in phases. 



NHIS requests its members to be vigilant against fraudulent attempts by scammers to capture their mobile money PIN code. Please do not share your mobile money PIN code with anyone purporting to be a representative of NHIS. (We will never ask for it) 


The NHIA is continuously working to improve the convenience and satisfaction of our members in the membership renewal process, reduce waiting times and queues at our district o?ces. We ask for your understanding and cooperation as we test and improve the service before the national roll out.
