Community Health Assist Scheme (CHAS) aims to provide accessible and affordable primary care to Singaporeans. A total of 388 dental clinics have signed up for CHAS as of 5th February 2014.
Under CHAS, patients receive subsidized basic dental services at dental clinics near their home. With effect from 1st January 2014, new changes to CHAS will allow more Singaporeans to benefit from this scheme (http://www.chas.sg/page_patients.aspx?id=574)
The Ministry would like to encourage more private dental clinics to sign up for CHAS. Details can be found at the following web pages:
