As of October 1, 2021, the Connecticut WIC Program renewed its sole-source contract with Abbott Laboratories® and provides Similac® Advance® or Similac® Isomil® Soy for healthy infants from birth to twelve months of age; whose mothers choose not to breastfeed or partially breastfeed or for whom breastfeeding is medically contraindicated.
WIC also provides
alternative Abbott Laboratories® standard formulas including Similac
Sensitive®, Similac Total Comfort® and Similac for Spit-Up®. All three of
these formulas provide 20 kcal/ fl. oz at standard dilution. Similac for Spit-Up® requires an ICD-10 code
and medical documentation from the health care provider.
WIC can also provide women, infants and children NOT dually enrolled in HUSKY/Medicaid and WIC, with special/exempt formulas, such as hypoallergenic, hypercaloric, elemental, and metabolic formulas with an appropriate nutrition related ICD-10 code medical diagnosis.
