Medisave/ CHAS/ PG Card

Medisave/ CHAS/ PG Card


Medisave is a national medical saving scheme which helps individuals set aside part of their income into the Medisave account to meet future personal or immediate family hospitalisation, day surgery and selected outpatient expenses.

Only day surgery procedures (e.g. surgical removal of wisdom teeth) can be covered by Medisave at National Dental Centre Singapore. Other non-surgical outpatient dental treatment procedures are currently not covered by the scheme.

If you intend to use Medisave to pay for your own treatment or for your immediate family members (i.e your spouse, children, parents or grandparents who are Singapore Citizens or Permanent Residents) please bring along your NRIC/ Passport or your CPF membership card and inform our staff during registration.

You will be given a Medisave Authorisation Form to sign, authorising the CPF Board to deduct from your Medisave Account to pay the bill.

Employer or Insurance

If your employer or insurer will pay for the treatment, you will need to provide us with your Hospitalisation Identity Card or Letter of Guarantee before treatment commences.
