In light of the Higgs discovery and the nonobservation of sparticles at the LHC, we revisit the supersymmetric theory (SUSY) induced top quark flavor-changing decay into the Higgs boson. We perform a scan over the relevant SUSY parameter space by considering the constraints from the Higgs mass measurement, the LHC search for SUSY, the vacuum stability, the precision electroweak observables as well as B -> X-s gamma. We make the following observations: (1) In the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM), the branching ratio of t -> ch can only reach 3.0 x 10(-6), which is about one order smaller than previous results obtained before the advent of the LHC. Among the considered constraints, the Higgs mass and the LHC search for sparticles are found to play an important role in limiting the prediction. (2) In the singlet extension of the MSSM, since the squark sector is less constrained by the Higgs mass, the branching ratio of t -> ch can reach the order of 10(-5) in the allowed parameter space. (3) The chiral-conserving mixings delta(LL) and delta(RR) may have remanent effects on t -> ch in the heavy SUSY limit. In the MSSM with squarks above 3 TeV and gluino above 4 TeV and meanwhile the CP-odd Higgs boson mass around 1 TeV, the branching ratio of t -> ch can still reach the order of 10(-8) under the constraints.
