CHAS Subsidies

The colour of the Health Assist card indicates the subsidy tier that you are entitled for, either CHAS Subsidy Blue or Orange tier.

All Pioneers also receive special CHAS subsidies for the same range of services, with their Pioneer Generation card.


The amount you pay will be based on the fees charged by the clinic, minus your CHAS subsidies. You may wish to check with your CHAS clinic on their fees before receiving treatment at each visit.  

Please note that by using your Health Assist or Pioneer Generation card at a CHAS clinic, you agree to allow your doctor/dentist to disclose your personal information to the Ministry of Health (including its authorised agents). Please click here for more details on the CHAS patient consent.

The table below summarises the subsidies that you can receive, depending on the colour of your card.

To receive treatment with CHAS

All participating CHAS GPs and dental clinics will display the CHAS stickers. You can visit any participating CHAS clinic of your choice, although you are recommended to visit the same family doctor each time you are unwell for better care management. Please call your preferred clinic for details on the range of services available.


To receive subsidies for your treatment at the CHAS clinic, you will need to produce your valid Health Assist, Pioneer Generation or PA card and NRIC during the visit, and we encourage clinics to check with their patients at the point of registration. Health Assist cardholders below 15 years old will have to present their valid Health Assist card with student ID or birth certificate.

To receive subsidies at participating CHAS GPs and dental clinics, Singapore Citizens on PA will need to produce their PA card and NRIC during the visit, and we encourage clinics to check with their patients at the point of registration.
