Eligibility and Application

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:

CHAS Criteria 

CHAS Green 

CHAS Orange 

CHAS Blue 

^Household monthly income per person (for households with income) 

Above $2,000

$1,201 - $2,000

$1,200 and below

^^Annual Value (AV) of home (for households with no income) 

Above $21,000

$13,001 - $21,000

$13,000 and 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 AV of your home is the estimated annual rent if it is rented out. It is assessed by IRAS. 

 

While every Singapore Citizen is eligible for CHAS, the enrolment onto CHAS is still on an application basis. To enjoy subsidies under CHAS, households are required to submit an application.

Singapore Citizens who have the Public Assistance (PA) card do not need to apply for CHAS, as they can already receive full CHAS subsidies by showing the PA card.

Application 

Singapore Citizens aged 21 years and older can apply for CHAS online on behalf of their household members. Alternatively, you may download a hardcopy application form here, or pick one up at any Community Centre/Club (CC), Community Development Council (CDC), Public Hospital or Polyclinic. Once completed, please mail the form (and supporting documents, if any) to P.O. Box 680, Bukit Merah Central Post Office, Singapore 911536.

Generally, your application will be processed within 15 working days from the date of receipt of the completed application. If you have not received the outcome after 15 working days, you may call the CHAS hotline at 1800-275-2427 (1800-ASK-CHAS) to enquire about your application status.

 

Upon successful application for CHAS 

Successful applicants and their household members will receive a CHAS card that indicates the subsidy tier they are eligible for, as well as a welcome pack with information on the use of the card. Unless otherwise indicated, CHAS cards typically have a validity period of 2 years.

CHAS cardholders are encouraged to visit the same family doctor each time they are unwell so that the doctor is familiar with their personal and family’s medical history. This will enable their doctors to effectively and holistically manage their medical conditions.
