On February 5, 2016, DaVita Rx, LLC (“Rx”), a pharmacy services provider and a wholly owned subsidiary of DaVita HealthCare Partners Inc. (the “Company”), received a Civil Investigative Demand (the “CID”) from the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Texas.

The CID covers the period from January 1, 2006 through the present.

The Company maintains policies and procedures to promote compliance with the False Claims Act and other applicable laws and regulations, and intends to cooperate with the government.
