Finding my NHI

We require your NHI number this is the National Health Index number.

You can usually find your NHI on:

  • Previous COVID-19 test result
  • Your online patient portal.
  • A prescription.
  • A prescription receipt.
  • A prescription medicine label on the box or bottle
  • A hospital letter.
  • An x-ray or test result.

If you still can’t find your NHI check with the health staff at your workplace, the person taking your COVID-19 nasopharyngeal swab, your general practitioner or pharmacist.

Tip: You can enter your NHI and store it safely on the My Data tab of your NZ COVID Tracer App for future reference.
