CHAS Subsidies

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​The colour of the CHAS card indicates the subsidy tier that cardholders are entitled to, namely the CHAS Blue, Orange or Green tier. All Pioneer Generation (PG) and Merdeka Generation (MG) seniors also receive special subsidies at CHAS clinics.

The amount that cardholders pay will be based on the fees charged by the clinic, minus the CHAS subsidies. The fees will vary according to each patient’s condition and clinic’s charges. Cardholders may wish to check with CHAS clinics on the claim limits and likely fees that they need to pay before receiving treatment at each visit. Please click here for the list of conditions and services covered under CHAS.

Please note that by using their CHAS/MG/PG cards and/or accepting CHAS subsidies at a CHAS clinic, cardholders agree to allow their doctor/dentist to disclose their personal information to the Ministry of Health (including its authorised agents). Please click here​​ for more details on the patient consent clauses for CHAS.

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. You may use the clinic locator to find the nearest clinic to you.

To receive subsidies for your treatment at the CHAS clinic, please produce your valid CHAS, MG or PG card and NRIC during the visit. We also encourage clinics to check with their patients on their CHAS/MG/PG/PA status at the point of registration. CHAS cardholders below 15 years old will have to present their valid CHAS card with student ID or birth certificate.

You may log in to MyCHAS using your SingPass to check the amount of subsidies and claim limits you have left for the calendar year. Alternatively, you may call the CHAS hotline at 1800-275-2427.


Public Assistance card (PA) cardholders

Singapore Citizens who are on ComCare Long-Term Assistance, also known as Public Assistance (PA), will receive full subsidies for the treatment of conditions covered under CHAS. However, limits on the number of visits and/or types of treatment covered are still applicable for PA cardholders.
                         
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. We also encourage clinics to check with their patients on their CHAS/MG/PG/PA status at the point of registration.
