Remember to Delete Appointments at Other Agencies When Participant Transfers to Your Agency

Description/Explanation: When a participant transfers to a different agency/clinic any appointments they may have scheduled at their previous agency/clinic DO NOT DELETE.

What You Should Do: It is best practice to ALWAYS DELETE appointments scheduled at another agency when a participant transfers from that agency to your agency. This will delete the appointment from the other agency's appointment schedule, ensuring that the no-show rate won't be inadvertently inflated by participants who have transferred out of an agency and that those appointments will be made available for other participants actually receiving services from that agency.

Remember, to see appointments scheduled at another agency, you need to click the View All button at the bottom of the Appointments tab in the Participant Folder.

The Cert End Date for All VOCs Should Be the Last Date of the Month in Which the Cert Ends

Description: The Cert End Date should be the last date of the month in which a participant's certification ends when performing VOC transfers.

Explanation: All certification end dates are calculated by HuBERT as the last date of the month in which a certification ends. If a participant comes from a state that ends their certification based on the actual date the participant was certified, you should round up to the last date of that month and enter that as the Cert End Date for all WIC Types.


  • Cert End Date on VOC = 2/07/2012
  • Cert End Date for MN WIC = 2/29/2012 (Note: February 2012 is a Leap Year.)

VOC with Cert End Date as 2/29/2012

What You Should Do: If you are performing a VOC certification, you must enter the last date of the month in which the cert ends as the Cert End Date.

Participants Can Be Transferred to Another Clinic in Your Agency by Changing Their Assigned Clinic in the Participant Folder

Did you know that you can transfer a participant to another clinic in your agency simply by changing the Clinic Assigned in the Demographics screen of the Participant Folder?

Once you select a different clinic, you will receive the "Do you want to transfer this participant to this clinic?" message. Click Yes and the participant now belongs to the newly assigned clinic.

Reminders about VOCs

The following are just some reminders about out-of-state transfers, or VOCs:

  • The Cert End Date is required for VOCs – make sure to enter the last date of the month if the cert ends on a date during the month
  • VOCs do not display in the Certification History tab since only certifications completed via the Certification Guided Script (CGS) display – this information can be found in the Risk Factors tab because the system auto-assigns Risk Factor 502 - Transfer of Certification
  • The Cert Start Date for VOCs is the date on which the VOC is performed
  • VOCs should only be performed if the participant is in a current cert – if their cert from another state has ended, do not perform a VOC, simply Prescreen (if necessary) and certify via the CGS

Do Not Terminate Participant when Printing VOC Document

Description: The Terminate checkbox on the Produce VOC Document window should not be selected when printing a VOC document.
