Quality Primary Care to be made accessible and affordable to more Singaporeans


During the National Day Rally, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong promised that healthcare is one of the areas in which the Government will spare no effort to help citizens. To help Singaporeans to cope with the cost of healthcare, he introduced the Merdeka Generation Package for Singaporeans born in 1950s and the CHAS enhancements which will extend to all Singaporeans with chronic medical conditions.

1)      A “Merdeka Generation Package” will be worked out for Singaporeans born in the 1950s. The package will cover similar areas as the Pioneer Generation package, such as outpatient subsidies, MediSave top ups, MediShield Life premium subsidies, and payouts for long term care. The benefits will be calibrated to take into account that this generation had better education and income growth than the Pioneers.
2)      CHAS will be extended to all Singaporeans with chronic conditions covered under the Chronic Disease Management Programme (CDMP), regardless of income. Subsidies will continue to be tiered according to income.

Further details will be announced at a later date. We will contact you in due course to prepare for the implementation of these enhancements. Please direct your patients to contact the CHAS Hotline at 
1800 275 2427 if they have any queries.
