New Employee Wellness Program
The City of Frisco provides the opportunity for new hires to earn wellness incentives through the City’s Wellness Program. If you are a new hire with the City and you enroll in one of the City’s medical plans, you are eligible to participate in the Wellness Program. By participating in the wellness program, you can lower the rate you pay for medical premiums. You can also earn dollars for your Health Reimbursement Account (HRA) than can be used to pay for medical, dental, pharmacy, and vision expenses not covered by insurance.
Within the first month of your employment, you will get a welcome email from Asset Health on how to set up and login to your online Heathy Here Asset Health portal. Asset Health tracks your incentive progress on this portal and you can access wellness resources from work at home online.
Once you login, you can view our New hire wellness program guide that helps you get acquainted with what the City has to offer in wellness incentives.
To review the program for new hires, see the summary below:
