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® and Similac Total Comfort®. Both formulas provide 20 kcal/ fl. oz at standard dilution.
Effective December 1, 2022, Similac for Spit-Up® has been discontinued by the manufacturer and will no longer be available through the Connecticut WIC Program. The Connecticut WIC Program will offer Enfamil AR® for those participants that were prescribed Similac for Spit-Up®. Enfamil AR® will require 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.
