Community Health Assist Scheme (CHAS)


The Community Health Assist Scheme (CHAS) is a scheme by the Ministry of Health (MOH) that enables Singapore Citizens from lower- and middle- income households, and all Pioneers, to receive subsidies for medical and dental care at participating CHAS General Practitioners (GPs) and dental clinics near their homes.                  

Singapore Citizens who qualify for CHAS will receive either an individual blue or orange Health Assist card. Health Assist cardholders will also enjoy subsidised referrals to Specialist Outpatient Clinics (SOCs) located at Public Hospitals or National Dental Centre when 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 treatment of their chronic conditions, patients can also tap on their Medisave to defray part of the cost of these treatments. The Medisave withdrawal limit is $500 per Medisave account, per year. 

What if your patient is a Public Assistance card (PA) cardholder?

Singapore Citizens who are on Public Assistance (PA) will receive full subsidies for treatment of conditions covered under CHAS blue tier*. To receive subsidies at participating CHAS GPs and dental clinics, Singapore Citizens on PA will need to produce their PA card and NRIC upon registration.
