Coronavirus WIC Update

    The Texas Health & Human Services Commission will be publishing a Vendor News Flash in the near future regarding WIC purchases during this critical time due to measures put in place to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

-Suspending LEB requirements.  Retailers may sell any items in the LEB category that are on the APL and on the customers’ prescription without fear of an LEB violation (the 85% policy).

-The cost containment policy as mandated by USDA will continue to be in effect.  However the not to exceed prices are set with some leeway for cost of product increases.

-The agency will temporarily suspend monitoring visits. However retailers are asked to make every effort to have the prescribed WIC products available on the shelf for customers.
