UnitedHealth to Buy Home-Health Firm LHC Group for $ 5.4 Billion

UnitedHealth Group Inc. has agreed to buy LHC Group Inc. for about $ 5.4 billion in cash, in the latest tie-up linking a managed-care company to the home-health business.

The acquisition by UnitedHealth’s Optum health-services arm, which is expected to be announced Tuesday, will add one of the country’s largest home-health firms to a portfolio that already includes doctor groups, clinics and surgery centers, as well as some home-based services.
