10:01 EDTDVADaVita sees taking $250M reserve for Vanier litigation
In a regulatory filing yesterday related to a bond offering, DaVita noted it has received subpoenas or other requests for documents from the federal government in connection with the Vainer private civil suit, the Swoben private civil suit, the 2011 U.S. Attorney Medicaid investigation, the 2015 U.S. Attorney Transportation Investigation and the JSA investigation. In each of the Vainer and Swoben private civil suits, a relator filed a complaint against the company in federal court under the qui tam provisions of the False Claims Act and pursued the claims independently after the government declined to intervene. With regard to the Vanier private civil suit, the parties are engaged in active litigation. The parties in that suit completed discovery in early 2014; however, in August 2014, the court granted relators’ motion for sanctions and reopened discovery on a limited basis. The court in Vainer is considering the plaintiffs’ request for further sanctions, which could result in a range of outcomes from no other sanctions to plaintiffs’ request to strike our answer. Certain of these sanctions could materially adversely impact the company's ability to defend the case, DaVita said. "While we cannot predict the ultimate outcome of this case, if the case is resolved in favor of the plaintiffs, its resolution could have a material adverse effect on our earnings and cash flows. We recently commenced settlement discussions with the plaintiffs in Vainer." The company said it expects to accrue an estimated loss contingency reserve of $250M related to this matter. "Negotiations are ongoing and we can make no assurances as to whether the Vainer suit will settle and, if it does settle, whether it will settle for an amount higher than the current reserve," DaVita added. With regard to the Swoben private civil suit, in July 2013, the court granted HCP’s motion and dismissed with prejudice all of the claims in the Third Amended Complaint, and in October 2013 the plaintiff filed an appeal of the dismissal, which is currently pending.
