Community Health Assist Scheme (CHAS)

Community Health Assist Scheme (CHAS)

The Community Health Assist Scheme (CHAS) entitles Singapore Citizens to receive subsidies for medical and/or dental care* at participating General Practitioner (GP) and dental clinics. In addition, citizens who are born on or before 31 December 1949 are entitled to Pioneer Generation (PG) benefits while those born between 1950 and 1959 will receive the Merdeka Generation (MG) card

Eligibility

All Singapore Citizens are eligible for CHAS. The CHAS benefits will be tiered according to household monthly income per person or the Annual Value (AV) of the home, as indicated in the table below:

^ Household monthly income per person is the total gross household monthly income divided by total number of family members living together. Gross monthly income refers to your basic employment income, trade/self-employed income, overtime pay, allowances, cash awards, commissions, and bonuses.

 

^^ The Annual Value (AV) of your home is the estimated annual rent if it was rented out as assessed by IRAS.

 

While every Singapore Citizen is eligible for CHAS, you are still required to submit an application unless you have the Public Assistance (PA) card which entitles you to receive full CHAS subsidies.

Patients who seek treatment for their chronic conditions at CHAS GP clinics can also receive subsidised rates for healthcare services such as Diabetic Foot Screening (DFS), Diabetic Retinal Photography (DRP) and nurse counselling at Community Health Centres (CHCs) and Primary Care Network (PCN) clinics.

Patients are encouraged to check with their doctor or dentist on the fee estimate prior to consultation as the treatment might vary according to each patient's condition. More details on the CHAS subsidy rates are available here.
