|Item 8.01|| |
On September 28, 2018, HealthCare Partners Holdings, LLC (HCP), a subsidiary of DaVita Inc. (DaVita), entered into a settlement agreement (the Settlement Agreement) with the United States that closes the governments investigation into HCP practices previously disclosed with the 2015 U.S. Office of Inspector General (OIG) Medicare Advantage Civil Investigation. HCP was acquired by DaVita in 2012 through a merger transaction and comprises the DaVita Medical Group business of DaVita.
As previously disclosed, an escrow established in connection with the HCP merger transaction in 2012 held back a portion of the purchase price to the prior owners of HCP as security for the indemnification rights of the Company. That escrow fully funds this settlement.
