Term: Registration Number (REGNO) / (REGNO_CODE)
Last Updated: 2023-04-03
A six-character, alphanumeric value (e.g. A12345) assigned by Manitoba Health to identify family units receiving health services. Also known as
family Registration Number.
Individuals within a family are also assigned a unique 9-digit Personal Health Identification Number (PHIN) for identifying services provided to that individual.
In March, 2023, changes were made to the value of the Registration Number being issued to new and existing Manitobans requiring a
Family Registration Number.
the Registration Number (REGNO) values changed from a six-character, numeric value (e.g. 123456) to a six character, alphanumeric value (e.g. A12345).
the alpha character(s) in the Registration Number will contain capitalized / upper case letters, will
contain any non-English language characters or special characters, and will
contain the letters B, I, Z, S, T, Q, G and O to avoid any confusion between letters and numbers that may look similar.
the family Registration Number variable name in related data files in the Manitoba Population Research Data Repository will change from REGNO to REGNO_CODE.
- there is no change to the 9-digit Personal Health Identification Number (PHIN) for identifying services provided to an individual.
