Dental Services
CHAS Blue, CHAS Orange, PG and MG cardholders can receive subsidies for selected dental services at participating dental clinics. The table below reflects the dental services covered under CHAS, and the claim limits and subsidy amount for each type of service according to the different CHAS tiers.

Please note that the dentist will need to make a clinical assessment to determine whether patients meet the CHAS claim guidelines for each dental procedure. Patients should speak with their dentists for more information.​

Note: For dental procedures that involve multiple visits, such as dentures, crowns and root canal treatments, subsidies can only be claimed after the procedure is completed. The procedure must be completed before your CHAS card expires.
