NHIS Membership Mobile Renewal
The National Health Insurance Scheme membership has introduced the mobile renewal service that allows members to renew their membership without any much hassle. This is because the government has successfully deployed the NHIS Mobile Renewal Service in all districts across the country.
You can access it and renew your NHIS membership just by dialing *929# from any phone network. The Mobile Renewal Service takes away the time-wasting periods and other inconveniences at NHIS District Offices when going for renewals.
