The Community Health Assist Scheme (CHAS) by the Ministry of Health (MOH) enables Singapore Citizens from lower- and middle-income households to receive subsidies for dental care at participating dental clinics near their homes. Under the CHAS Dental Insurance, we provide subsidized rates for our outpatient dental services for all CHAS, Pioneer Generation (PG) and Merdeka Generation (MG) cardholders.
All Singapore Citizens are eligible to apply for the CHAS. The CHAS benefits are tiered according to household monthly income per person or the Annual Value (AV) of the home. To find out which tier you are eligible for, calculate your household monthly income per person here.
Public Assistance (PA) cardholders do not need to apply for CHAS, as they can already receive full CHAS subsidies by showing the PA card.
You can apply for the CHAS online. Singapore Citizens aged 21 years and older can also apply for CHAS on behalf of their household members.
|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|
In order to receive subsidized treatment, you will need to make an appointment with us and present both your CHAS card and your NRIC upon registration.
