CHAS / Merdeka Generation / Pioneer Generation


NUFFIELD DENTAL Clinics provide subsidized dental care for card holders.


What is CHAS?

The Community Health Assist Scheme (CHAS) enables Singapore Citizens from lower-and middle-income households to receive subsidies for medical and dental care at participating General Practitioners (GPs) and dental clinics near their homes.

Singapore Citizens who qualify for CHAS will receive an individual blue or orange Health Assist card. Health Assist cardholders will also enjoy subsidized referrals to Specialist Outpatient Clinics (SOCs) located at Public Hospitals or National Dental Centre when required.

From1 January 2014, all Singapore Citizens (regardless of age) who meet the household monthly income per person of $1,800 and below can qualify for CHAS. For instance, a family of four living at the same address with a total gross household monthly income of $7,200 (household monthly income per person is $7,200 ÷ 4 = $1,800) will qualify for CHAS, provided that they are all Singapore Citizens.

What is Merdeka Generation Package?

Born between 1950 and 1959, the Merdeka Generation grew up during the tumultuous years of the 1950s and early 1960s. They steered the labour force in turbulent times, building a sturdy foundation. The men of the generation were among the earliest to serve National Service, while some of the women left school early to support their families.

Together with the Pioneer Generation, they have contributed greatly to Singapore during a time of struggle, hardship, and sacrifice.

You are eligible for the Merdeka Generation Package if you:
• Were born from 1 January 1950 to 31 December 1959; and
• Became a Singapore citizen on or before 31 December 1996.

The Merdeka Generation Package is also given to seniors who:
• Were born on or before 31 December 1949; and
• Became Singapore citizens on or before 31 December 1996; and
• Do not receive the Pioneer Generation Package.
