The service can be accessed by dialing short code, *842*10#, from MTN or Vodafone number, the NHIA said in a statement, promising the services would be available on all networks in due course. This will allow all active  / inactive members renew their NHIS membership cards right on their mobile phone via mobile mobile

The code, *842*10#, can be used by NHIS members to check the status of their NHIS  membership eligibility, NHIS benefit 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 statement said.

It said the NHIS mobile membership renewal service will be launched soon and rolled out in phases.

The NHIS has however warned 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),” it stressed.

NOTE : As at the time of this writing the shortcode *842*10# wasn’t working on the MTN network.
