Cost Containment in the WIC Program: Vendor Peer Groups and Reimbursement Rates
Tina L. Saitone (au); Richard J. Sexton (au); Richard J. volpe (au)
The Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC), a Federal food assistance program providing participants with key foods and beverages. Since WIC is not an entitlement program, the amount of aid available to cover those who are eligible depends on fixed budget appropriations and WIC agency cost containment. This report examines how cost containment might be improved through changes in the regulations governing WIC vendors and allowable reimbursement levels for foods covered by the program. Using California, the largest WIC program, as a case study, the authors analyze data on WIC redemptions äóî that is, reimbursements to vendors for items bought by WIC participants äóî and determine the potential for cost savings through changes to the cost-containment practices. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
