Colorado Attorney General Announces $22 Million Settlement with DaVita Regarding Illegal Kickbacks

DENVER-Colorado Attorney General John Suthers today announced five states have reached a $22 million settlement with DaVita Healthcare Partners, Inc., of which Colorado will recover more than $3 million. The settlement resolves allegations that between 2008 and 2013, DaVita entered into a number of transactions with physicians and/or physician groups in which the company would buy or sell shares in dialysis clinics at prices that were manipulated to make the transactions financially attractive for the physicians and generate patient referrals to its dialysis centers.
