Date:6/24/2009

NEW YORK, June 24 /PRNewswire/ -- The National Business Group on Health (NBGH) has named Verizon to its 2009 list of Best Employers for Healthy Lifestyles.

Verizon earned a spot in the list's Gold Category for helping employees make better choices about health and well-being. The company provides 100 percent coverage for preventive care.

More than 10 percent of Verizon's employees had enrolled in HealthZone by the end of 2008.
