I would think that if your feral is now indoor only and you use a flea preventative monthly, then after 1-2 de-wormings (by a qualified vet who knows what type of worm he/she is treating for), then you shouldn't need to worry about worms anymore.
I'd be very hesitant to diagnose and treat worms myself if I was not sure what type of worm and how much medication/type medication to give.
I'm no expert, but my thinking is that if the cat is getting "worms from time to time", then you never got rid of them in the first place.
