The U.S. Federal Trade Commission has asked for more information regarding UnitedHealth Group's (UNH) proposed deal to buy DaVita Medical Group (DVA), DaVita Inc. said in a regulatory filing.

DaVita said that the FTC asked for more information on March 12 to review the deal, which still needs regulatory approval.

UnitedHealth's $4.9 billion cash deal to buy DaVita Medical Group was announced in December and would combine the group with the OptumCare division a part of Optum, which is part of UnitedHealth.
