Denver‑based Qwest and five other companies joined Wal-Mart Stores Inc.

and two labor groups in a coalition calling for health coverage for all people

in the U.S. by 2012.


"Health care reform in this country is everyone's issue," said Dick Notebaert,

Qwest chairman and CEO. "We are pleased to be a part of a group so dedicated

to one of our most pressing issues, and we are look­ing forward to working toward

a new American health care sys­tem."
