Upgrading A State WIC Program MIS For EBT
An electronic benefits payment system that delivers program-wide improvements
WIC (Women, Infants, and Children) is a nutrition program that provides free health and nutrition-related services to over 100,000 participants statewide. The program operates 130 clinic locations throughout the Commonwealth and is staffed by more than 500 employees across 35 regionally-located sites. In response to new federal regulations, the State WIC Program drew on their decade-long relationship with Ciber for help to upgrade the legacy system replacing the paper check benefit payments with electronic benefits transfer.
