Update to COVID Tracer App | NHI number

September 4th, 2020

The Ministry of Health have advised that they will be releasing a new version of NZ COVID Tracer to the Apple app store and the Google play store on Thursday 3 September 2020. They expect that most users will install the update overnight on 3 September 2020. They are adding “My NHI Number” into the app.

You can usually find your NHI on:

  • a prescription
  • a prescription receipt
  • a prescription medicine label
  • a hospital letter
  • an x-ray or test result
  • your patient portal (MMH).

If you have checked all the above locations and still can’t find your NHI number, you can phone us.
