Health Care Providers

San Francisco WIC Program counts on health care providers to refer WIC-eligible families to the WIC Program.

  • To be eligible for WIC services, WIC participants must provide proof of pregnancy (if applicable), height and weight measurements and blood work. This information is requested from the health care provider in order to encourage referrals to healthcare services. In many cases, height, weight and hemoglobin screening can be done at the WIC site as well.

  • California State WIC requires medical documentation for formula for premature and medically fragile infants. This includes any special formulas and nutritionals for older children.
