The Ghana Card by the government is the primary identity for all citizenry and is usable to conduct all legitimate transactions. In doing so, NHIA has factored it into the mobile authentication USSD *842# to enable our credentialed Facilities to generate unique CCC and

Health Insurance Numbers (HIN): In the process of successful authentication with Ghana Card number (GHA-XXXXXXX-X), apart from the 5-digit CCC, a new 8 or 10-digits Health Insurance Number shall uniquely be generated. Therefore both CCC and HIN are mandatory on the Claim
