About CHAS

What is the Community Health Assist Scheme (CHAS)?

The Community Health Assist Scheme (CHAS) enables all Singapore Citizens, including Pioneer Generation (PG) and Merdeka Generation (MG) cardholders, to receive subsidies for medical and/or dental care at participating General Practitioner (GP) and dental clinics.

Besides subsidies for care at CHAS clinics, CHAS, MG and PG cardholders enjoy subsidised referrals to public Specialist Outpatient Clinics (SOCs), as well as subsidised referrals to the National Dental Centre Singapore and National University Centre for Oral Health Singapore*, if required.

For patients with chronic conditions, CHAS complements the Chronic Disease Management Programme (CDMP), which allows for MediSave to be used for outpatient treatment (for the same set of chronic conditions) covered under CHAS. Besides enjoying CHAS subsidies for the treatment of their chronic conditions, patients can also tap on their MediSave to defray part of the cost of these treatments. Please see here for more information.

Patients are encouraged to check with their doctor or dentist on the likely fees that they will be charged prior to consultation as the treatment might vary according to each patient's condition. More details on the CHAS subsidy rates are available here.

CHAS, MG and PG cardholders can also enjoy subsidised rates for healthcare services provided at specified Community Health Centres (CHCs), which complement the clinical care offered by GPs for chronic conditions. CHC services include Diabetic Retinal Photography (DRP), Diabetic Foot Screening (DFS) and nurse counselling. More information on the CHCs is available here.
