Branch Wellness Program
The City of Farmers Branch is re-energizing its wellness programming as of 2013. All employees are encouraged to know their "critical health numbers" and take proactive steps to improve their overall health and fitness on a long-term basis. Since then we have partnered with Viverae, a health management company, to help facilitate the program. The Branch Wellness program is run on a point system with an excel goal of 300 points for an incentive opportunity of earning up to $700 into a Medical HSA account. Again, your goal as an employee only is 300 points, however, if you have a covered spouse, both will need to participate in reaching the goal of 300 points each.

All of your information is kept confidential and captured on your very own web portal at
