Finding your NHI number

Health NZ – Te Whatu Ora() has information on how to find your NHI number.

There are several ways to find your NHI number, including on:

  • a prescription or prescription receipt
  • a prescription medicine bottle label
  • a hospital letter
  • an x-ray or test result
  • by checking your profile on the online patient portal provided by your general practice.

If you can't find your NHI, your general practice or pharmacist may be able to assist. Don’t worry if you’re not enrolled with a GP. Your NHI will be found or assigned when you next use health and disability support services in New Zealand.
