Working With WIC

WIC is proud to offer healthy foods and experts in nutrition, health, and breastfeeding to assist families at critical periods of growth and development.

CDPH/WIC Division counts on health care providers to refer WIC-eligible families to the WIC Program.

Whether you work in a hospital, the community or a clinic, WIC is here to help your patient population!

Therapeutic Formula

A WIC participant may have a medical condition and need therapeutic formula that is not a WIC contract formula. Therapeutic formulas should be covered by the WIC participant's health plan when the clinician provides adequate medical justification. Should a WIC participant be denied therapeutic formula coverage by his or her health plan (Medi-Cal or other health insurance), the WIC Program may provide the therapeutic formula.
