Here are three updates about value-based care that ASCs need to know:
1. UnitedHealth Group is planning to integrate more behavioral and home health services into its care delivery strategy as the company continues to expand its value-based care offerings, CEO Andrew Witty told investors during a fourth-quarter earnings call Jan. 13.
2. Carbon Health secured $100 million in series D funding from CVS Health Ventures on Jan. 10.

3. Primary care provider VillageMD, which is majority owned by Walgreens Boots Alliance, appointed Stuart Levine, MD, as its president of value-based care.
