The forward-looking statements should be considered in light of these risks and uncertainties.

These risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to, and are qualified in their entirety by reference to the full text of those risk factors in our SEC filings relating to:

    --  the concentration of profits generated by higher-paying commercial payor
        plans for which there is continued downward pressure on average realized
        payment rates, and a reduction in the number of patients under such
        plans, which may result in the loss of revenues or patients,
    --  a reduction in government payment rates under the Medicare End Stage
        Renal Disease program or other government-based programs,
    --  the impact of health care reform legislation that was enacted in the
        United States in March 2010,
    --  the impact of the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) 2014
        Medicare Advantage benchmark structure,
    --  the impact of the American Taxpayer Relief Act,
    --  the impact of disruptions in federal government operations and funding,
    --  changes in pharmaceutical or anemia management practice patterns,
        payment policies, or pharmaceutical pricing,
    --  legal compliance risks, including our continued compliance with complex
        government regulations and current or potential investigations by
        various government entities and related government or private-party
        proceedings, including risks relating to the resolution of the 2010 and
        2011 U.S. Attorney Physician Relationship Investigations, such as
        restrictions on our business and operations required by a corporate
        integrity agreement and other settlement terms, and the financial impact
        thereof,
    --  our ability to maintain contracts with physician medical directors,
        changing affiliation models for physicians, and the emergence of new
        models of care introduced by the government or private sector, that may
        erode our patient base and reimbursement rates,
    --  our ability to complete acquisitions, mergers or dispositions that we
        might be considering or announce, or to integrate and successfully
        operate any business we may acquire or have acquired, including
        HealthCare Partners (HCP), or to expand our operations and services to
        markets outside the United States,
    --  the risk that we might invest material amounts of capital and incur
        significant costs in connection with the growth and development of our
        international operations, yet we might not be able to operate them
        profitably anytime soon, if at all,
    --  risks arising from the use of accounting estimates, judgments and
        interpretations in our financial statements,
    --  the risk that the cost of providing services under HCP's agreements may
        exceed our compensation,
    --  the risk that reductions in reimbursement rates, including Medicare
        Advantage rates, and future regulations may negatively impact HCP's
        business, revenue and profitability,
    --  the risk that HCP may not be able to successfully establish a presence
        in new geographic regions or successfully address competitive threats
        that could reduce its profitability,
    --  the risk that a disruption in HCP's healthcare provider networks could
        have an adverse effect on HCP's business operations and profitability,
    --  the risk that reductions in the quality ratings of health maintenance
        organization plan customers of HCP could have an adverse effect on HCP's
        business, or
    --  the risk that health plans that acquire health maintenance organizations
        may not be willing to contract with HCP or may be willing to contract
        only on less favorable terms.

We base our forward-looking statements on information currently available to us at the time of this release, and we undertake no obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of changes in underlying factors, new information, future events or otherwise.
