Definitely. We've been on Similac Sensitive since Jude was born. He hated that Nestle Goodstart or whatever it is.

As long as its a covered formula.  VA, for examply, has a list of not allowed formulas (Enfamil Lipil, Prosobee Lipil, anything lactose free, Similac, Similac Sensitive, all GoodStart formulas, Similac or Enfamil Human Milk Fortifier and store brand).  A specialized formula; however, such as Nutramigen, Alimentum, etc. will definitely be covered.  You can google "WIC approved formulas for ____" and put your state in, and you'll be able to find the list of ALL approved formulas, even the ones covered only with script.  If its not on there, it won't be covered, but its an extensive list (11 pages for my state).  Good luck.

It just depends. With a doctors note we were able to get similac alimentum but not the regular similac.
