CHAS/Pioneer Generation

RMG-CHASThe Community Health Assist Scheme (CHAS) was introduced on 1 Jan 2014 to provide accessible and affordable primary healthcare services to Singapore citizens. CHAS covers selected dental treatments, common illnesses1, and 15 chronic conditions under the Chronic Disease Management Programme (CDMP)2.

Patients who qualify for CHAS and Pioneer Generation will receive subsidies when they visit a CHAS-clinic for their healthcare needs3.

Raffles Medical Group is happy to provide subsidised medical care to more Singaporeans at Raffles Medical GP and Dental clinics island-wide* under CHAS. We can also assist with CHAS applications.

For more information on CHAS, please click here.

*All Raffles Medical clinics are participatory clinics under the CHAS scheme except 24 Hour Emergency @ Raffles Hospital

Raffles Medical clinics# are participatory clinics under the CHAS scheme. To receive CHAS/Pioneer Generation subsidies for your medical treatment, please present your CHAS/Pioneer Generation card and NRIC upon registration.

As you may need to co-pay for your treatment, please check with your doctor on the fees before you proceed with the treatment.
