WIC Applications Now Online

The Oklahoma State Department of Health (OSDH) Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) Program has implemented an online application for new and existing clients in order to minimize exposure to the COVID-19 virus. This application allows clients to provide information and answer questions used to determine eligibility.
All WIC clinic sites statewide can now process WIC functions over the phone and electronically. There is no need for clients to visit a WIC clinic site in person. The online application will reduce the time currently spent on the phone performing certifications and recertifications for both the client and staff.
Nutrition education is available online, through self-paced lessons and by phone. WIC dietitians can meet with clients who have special nutritional needs through telehealth services.
Food benefits are assigned utilizing an electronic benefits system and for many existing clients, additional food benefits have already been loaded to their eWIC card.
Once the online application is submitted, clinic staff will contact clients to finalize the enrollment and issue benefits. A benefits card will be mailed to new clients. To access the online application, visit the WIC website at http://wic.health.ok.gov/.
