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 (for households with income)
$1,201 - $2,000
$1,200 and below
^^Annual Value (AV) of home (for households with no income)
$13,001 - $21,000
$13,000 and below
^^ Annual Value is the estimated gross annual rent of a property if it were to be rented out, excluding furnishings and maintenance fees. It is determined by IRAS and may be checked via mytax.iras.gov.sg. Please note that the revision of AVs in 2023 will not affect subsidy eligibility, as AVs as of 2022 will be used to determine subsidy levels in 2023.
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.
If your household was not automatically processed for renewal or did not receive the renewal letter 1 month before your cards' expiry, please submit a renewal application online or via the hardcopy form to continue receiving CHAS subsidies after your current card expires.
The online application e-service displays the Main Applicant's household members, based on Government records. The household composition should reflect all family members sharing the same NRIC address.
As a Main Applicant, you should verify that the household composition shown is correct. If it is correct, you should confirm your household composition and proceed with the online application. If the household composition shown is incorrect, you should update it by adding or removing the relevant family members, before continuing with the online application. Please note that we may contact you for further clarification and supporting documents if you have updated your household composition.
Most applications will not require additional supporting documents. However, if further supporting documents are required for your application, our officers will contact you to advise on the documents required.
All Singapore Citizens are eligible for CHAS and no fee is required. The enrolment onto CHAS is still on an application basis. To enjoy subsidies under CHAS, households are required to submit an application.
Annual Value (AV) is used as a proxy for wealth and family support. While it is not a perfect measure, it remains a reasonable proxy for the financial resources available to the individaul, including from immediate family members that reside with this individual.
The revision of AVs in 2023 will not affect your benefits tiered for CHAS as AVs as of 2022 will be used to determine the card tier in 2023. CHAS will continue to be reviewed to ensure that Singaporeans in need of support receive it.
Not all GPs and/or dental clinics participate in the scheme. CHAS clinics can be easily identified by the CHAS stickers displayed.
