Recall our Deepavali video about a guest falling ill during a Royal Deepavali feast?

Good thing the King had CHAS!

Jokes aside, here’s a quick FAQ on your top 5 questions about CHAS.

1. What is CHAS?

CHAS stands for Community Health Assist Scheme

CHAS cardholders enjoy subsidised medical and dental care at participating GPs and dental clinics.

It covers common illnesses (e.g. cold and fever), selected chronic conditions (e.g. diabetes and high blood pressure), and selected dental services and recommended health screenings .

2. I heard there are different colours of CHAS Cards? What are they?

The three colours are Blue, Orange, and Green

They represent different levels of CHAS subsidies.

3. What’s the difference?

CHAS Blue and Orange provides lower-income households with higher subsidies for treating common illnesses, chronic conditions, and dental services.

From 1 November 2019, CHAS Blue and Orange cardholders enjoy higher subsidies than before. 

With the new CHAS Green tier, all Singaporeans with certain chronic conditions can now receive subsidies for their treatment costs, regardless of income.
