The Ministry of Health (MOH) and the Health Promotion Board (HPB) have introduced the Screen for Life (SFL) programme to encourage eligible Singaporeans to go for recommended health screenings and post-screening follow-ups. Besides Pioneer Generation (PG) and Community Health Assist Scheme (CHAS) cardholders, all other Singaporeans are also entitled to subsidised screenings and one follow-up consultation (if needed) at a low, fixed fee, as long as they have a recommendation by HPB. This is only available at CHAS GP clinics.
The fees are fixed at $5 for eligible Singaporeans, $2 for eligible CHAS (both Blue and Orange) cardholders, and free for eligible Pioneers.
This fee covers the screening test(s) done within the same visit, and the first post-screening consultation, if assessed that a consultation is required. Individuals who undergo their screening test(s) on a separate visit will be charged a separate fixed fee.
For example, an eligible CHAS cardholder will pay $2, and this will cover the cost of the screening visit, which could include screening tests for cardiovascular risk, colorectal cancer and/or cervical cancer screening, and the consultation fees for one follow-up visit, if required.
Permanent Residents (PR) due for recommended health screenings will be notified by HPB. While PRs are not eligible for SFL subsidies, they are eligible for HPB’s screening test rate(s)* at CHAS GP clinics. The prevailing doctors’ consultation rates will be charged accordingly by the respective CHAS GP clinics.
*$10 for cardiovascular risk screening, $12.50 for Pap test, $32 for FIT, excluding GST.
