CHAS Dental Subsidy

CHAS (Community Health Assist Scheme) 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. 


Patients need to show both their NRIC and valid CHAS, MG or PG card during their visits for verification purposes.

How CHAS Dental Subsidy Scheme Works

CHAS logo

CHAS Orange, CHAS Blue, MG and PG cardholders can receive subsidies for selected dental services at Nuffield Dental clinics.

The table below reflects the dental services covered under CHAS, and the claim limits and subsidy amount for each type of service according to the different CHAS tiers.


Please note that the dentist will need to make a clinical assessment to determine whether patients meet the CHAS claim guidelines for each dental procedure. Patients should speak with their dentists for more information.

CHAS Card Tiers

The colour of the CHAS card indicates the subsidy tier that cardholders are entitled to — CHAS Blue, Orange or Green. All Pioneer Generation (PG) and Merdeka Generation (MG) seniors are also entitled to special subsidies at Nuffield Dental clinics.

Additionally, citizens with the Public Assistance (PA) card can present their card to receive the full CHAS subsidies without applying for CHAS.


All Singapore Citizens can apply for CHAS. Every household is required to submit an application in order to receive the card.
Subsidy amounts provided differs depending on the following criteria:

For households with an income: Monthly Household Income per person

This is determined by dividing the total gross household income per month by the number of family members staying in the household.

For households without an income: The Annual Value (AV) of the home (assessed by IRAS)

The AV is the approximate amount of rent collected annually if the home is being rented out.

The table below shows the breakdown of the respective tiers:
