On June 2, 2015, the California Department of Public Health/Women, Infants and Children Division (CA WIC) announced that authorized vendors will begin receiving new Vendor Agreements that must be signed and returned to CA WIC, generally within 15 days. Failure to respond will result in termination of vendor authorization.
The new agreements are intended to incorporate changes implemented in October of 2013 and June of 2014 relating to vendor authorization criteria, peer group criteria, and reimbursement rates. Vendor Alert 2015-05, available HERE and on the CA WIC web site, outlines specific areas of the Vendor Agreement that contain the new information and specific deadlines for current vendors with agreement expiration dates prior to and after August 1, 2015.
Should you have any questions, please contact CA WIC directly at 1-855-WIC STOR (1-855-942-7867) or via e-mail at [email protected].
