Private equity firm Carlyle Group Inc. is in talks to buy health-care technology firm Cotiviti Inc. for close to $15 billion, including debt, from Veritas Capital, according to people familiar with the matter. 

Carlyle is working with private credit firms to gather around $5.5 billion of financing for the potential deal, though private lenders may not provide all the debt, said the people, who asked to not be identified because the details are private. That would be one of the largest ever direct loans or non-bank buyout loans arranged in the private credit market, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.
