WIC-eligible nutritionals and therapeutic formulas
WIC recognizes and promotes breastfeeding as the optimal source of nutrition for infants. WIC encourages breastfeeding for one year and beyond. For women who do not fully breastfeed, WIC provides iron-fortified infant formula.
If one of the standard WIC contract formulas is not appropriate for your patient, refer patient to Medi-Cal for medically necessary formula or medical food. When these products are not a covered benefit for Medi-Cal, health care providers may send the request to WIC.
