The Chronic Disease Management Programme (CDMP) is an initiative by MOH that allows you to pay for your chronic disease management in a Medisave-approved clinic, like our Intemedical Clinic, using your MediSave savings.


The CDMP covers the following 20 chronic conditions:

1) Diabetes/Pre-Diabetes

2) Hypertension (high blood pressure)

3) Hyperlipidemia (high cholesterol)

4) Stroke

5) Asthma

6) Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)

7) Schizophrenia

8) Major Depression

9) Bipolar Depression

10) Dementia

11) Osteoarthritis

12) Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH)

13) Anxiety

14) Parkinson's Disease

15) Chronic Kidney Disease (Nephrosis/Nephritis)

16) Epilepsy

17) Osteoporosis

18) Psoriasis

19) Rheumatoid Arthritis

20) Ischaemic Heart Disease



The CDMP scheme is applicable for all eligible Singaporeans, and patients can make use of their immediate family member’s medisave (spouse, children, parents) to make their claims too. Those with simple chronic conditions can use up to $500 per patient yearly, while those with complex chronic conditions will be able to use up to $700 per patient yearly. A simple chronic condition is defined as if the patient has received treatment for only one CDMP condition. While complex chronic condition is defined as receiving treatment for two or more different CDMP conditions in one visit, or receiving treatment for at least one CDMP condition with recognized complications.


Each CDMP claim is subject to a 15% co-payment by the patient. This means that if the final cost of the visit is $100, $85 can be claimed from MediSave, while $15 will have to be bourne by the patient his/herself.


FlexiMedisave200 was introduced for those 60 years and above to allow them to use their MediSave or their spouse’s MediSave (if their age is also 60 and above), up to $200 for outpatient medical treatment. Hence, for those 60 and above, their total allowance under this scheme would be $700 for simple chronic conditions instead of the usual $500, and $900 for complex chronic conditions.


For those holding CHAS, Merdeka, or Pioneer Generation cards, your respective cards will be used to deduct for your chronic conditions before the CDMP is activated for use.
