Free Health Screening: Pay only $0 to $5 under Screen for Life National Health Screening Programme

Screen for Life – National Health Screening Programme

HPB has an ongoing Screen for Life (SFL) health screening program which is a national health screening programme that encourages Singapore Citizens and Permanent Residents to go for regular health screening and follow up.


The best time to go for screening is when you still feel fine. Under this program, Singaporean citizens (aged 40 and above) can enjoy subsidies and pay $0 to $5 per screening visit. Other subsidised rates apply for Permanent Residents.

The subsidised screening cover cardiovascular diseases, cervical cancer, and colorectal cancer at a low, fixed fee or free depending on Chas Card groups. All Singaporeans are entitled to health screening of $5 but it could be completely free if you belong to the right Chas Card Group.

Subsidy Coverage & Fees

The fixed fee also covers one follow-up consultation (if needed). These screening services are available at CHAS GP clinics.

The subsidy is free for Pioneers. CHAS Blue, CHAS Orange and Merdeka Generation (MG) cardholders will need to pay a fixed fee of $2. All other Singaporeans, including CHAS Green cardholders, only need to pay $5.

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.
