par value $0.001 per share (Common Stock), of DaVita Inc. (DVA) held by various insurance company subsidiaries of GEICO Corporation (GEICO Corp), which is a wholly-owned subsidiary of National Indemnity Company
(NICO), which is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Berkshire Hathaway Inc. (Berkshire and such 18,513,482 shares, the Insurance Company Shares), and 20,052,088 shares of Common Stock held by various pension plans of
Berkshire subsidiaries (such 20,052,088 shares, the Pension Plan Shares). The Insurance Company Holders (as hereinafter defined), GEICO, NICO, and Berkshire are referred to herein collectively as the Berkshire Entities. The

authority on behalf of his relatives or related trusts, and Mr. Weschler disclaims any beneficial ownership of shares of Common Stock owned by the Berkshire Reporting Persons. This report shall not be deemed an admission that any
filer of this Schedule 13D is the beneficial owner of any shares of Common Stock that are not directly owned by such filer, for purposes of Section 13 of the Exchange Act or for any other purpose.

The Berkshire Reporting Persons, Warren E. Buffett (Mr. Buffett), and Mr. Weschler previously filed a Statement on Schedule
13G with respect to the ownership of shares of Common Stock of DVA. The Berkshire Reporting Persons, Mr. Buffett and Mr. Weschler are required to file this Statement on Schedule 13D as a result of DVA repurchasing shares of its Common
Stock such that the Berkshire Reporting Persons aggregate beneficial ownership exceeds 20%.

Reporting Persons. Additionally, this Statement is filed by Mr. Weschler as required by the terms of the Letter Agreement. The information concerning the name, state or other place of organization, principal business, and the address of the
principal office of each of the Berkshire Entities, and the information concerning the name, business address, present principal occupation or employment, and the name, principal business address of any corporation or other organization in which
such employment or occupation is conducted, and the citizenship of Mr. Buffett, Mr. Weschler and each of the executive officers and directors of the Berkshire Entities is filed as Exhibit 1 hereto.

(d); (e) During the last five years, none of the Berkshire Reporting Persons, Mr. Buffett or Mr. Weschler, or, to their
knowledge, any of the directors or executive officers of the Berkshire Entities, has been convicted in a criminal proceeding (excluding traffic violations or similar misdemeanors) or was a party to a civil proceeding of a judicial or administrative
body of competent jurisdiction and as a result of such proceeding was or is subject to a judgment, decree, or final order enjoining future violation of, or prohibiting or mandating activities subject to, federal or state securities laws or finding
any violation with respect to such laws.

Item 4. Purpose of Transaction

The Berkshire Reporting Persons acquired the Shares for investment purposes. One or more entities within the Berkshire group of companies,
including one or more of the reporting persons filing this Schedule, may determine to purchase additional shares of Common Stock or other securities of DVA in the open market or otherwise, depending upon price, market conditions, availability of
funds, evaluation of alternative investments and other factors, subject to the terms of the Standstill Agreement, as described in Item 6 below. While none of the persons with beneficial ownership over the Insurance Company Shares or

The Weschler Shares were acquired by their holders for investment purposes. Mr. Weschler, who has sole or shared dispositive power over
all of the Weschler Shares, may determine to purchase additional shares of Common Stock or other securities of DVA in the open market or otherwise, depending upon price, market conditions, availability of funds, evaluation of alternative investments
and other factors; provided, that, pursuant to the Letter Agreement, for so long as Berkshire has holdings in securities of DVA, Mr. Weschler is not permitted to purchase, on behalf of himself or on behalf of any member of his
immediate family and related entitles (including trusts of which he is trustee), or pursuant to a power of attorney or other trading authorization, additional shares of Common Stock or other DVA securities, without Mr. Buffetts prior
consent. While Mr. Weschler does not have any present plans to sell any of the Weschler Shares, he could determine, based upon the same set of factors listed above with respect to purchases, to sell some or all of the Weschler Shares;
provided, that, pursuant to the Letter Agreement, for so long as Berkshire has holdings in securities of DVA, Mr. Weschler is not permitted to sell, on behalf of himself or on behalf of any member of his immediate family and
related entitles (including trusts of which he is trustee), or pursuant to a power of attorney or other trading authorization, any of the Common Stock owned as of the date of such letter, without Mr. Buffetts prior consent.

holder of record of 63,254 shares of Common Stock, which represents less than 0.1% of the outstanding Common Stock. Collectively, the Insurance Company Holders directly own 18,513,482 shares of Common Stock, which represents 9.7% of the outstanding
Common Stock. Each of the Insurance Company Holders is a wholly-owned subsidiary of (and controlled by) GEICO Corp. GEICO Corp. is a wholly-owned subsidiary of (and controlled by) NICO. Thus, each of NICO and GEICO Corp may be deemed to have
beneficial ownership of the Insurance Company Shares.

Common Stock, which represents 0.2% of the outstanding Common Stock. Berkshire Hathaway Consolidated Pension Plan Master Retirement Trust is the holder of record of 2,650,000 shares of Common Stock, which represents 1.4% of the outstanding Common

Investment Trust is the holder of record of 450,000 shares of Common Stock, which represents 0.2% of the outstanding Common Stock. Collectively, the pension plans referenced in this paragraph
(the Pension Plan Holders) directly own 20,052,088 shares of Common Stock, which represents 10.5% of the outstanding Common Stock.

Mr. Buffett may be deemed to control Berkshire, which controls NICO. Thus, Mr. Buffett and Berkshire may be deemed to have
beneficial ownership of the Shares.

Mr. Weschler beneficially owns 2,383,180 shares of Common Stock, which represents 1.2% of the
outstanding Common Stock. Mr. Weschler disclaims beneficial ownership of all Insurance Company Shares and Pension Plan Shares.

All
calculations of percentage ownership in this Schedule are based on 191,200,237 shares of Common Stock estimated to be issued and outstanding as of June 30, 2017, as reported in the Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the Quarterly Period
ended June 30, 2017, which was filed by DVA with the SEC on August 1, 2017.

(b) The Insurance Company Holders have both voting
and investment power with respect to the Insurance Company Shares owned by them and the Pension Plan Holders have both voting and investment power with respect to the Pension Plan Shares owned by them. However, because NICO and GEICO Corp control
the Insurance Company Holders, NICO and GEICO Corp may be deemed to share voting and investment power with respect to the Insurance Company Shares. In addition, Berkshire directs the investments of NICO, GEICO Corp, and the Pension Plan Holders.
Thus, Mr. Buffett, who may be deemed to control Berkshire, and Berkshire share voting power and investment power with respect to the Shares.

Mr. Weschler has sole voting and investment power with respect to 2,239,806 of the Weschler Shares and shared dispositive (but not
investment) power with respect to 143,374 of the Weschler Shares.

(c) None of the Berkshire Reporting Persons or Mr. Buffett or, to
their knowledge, any executive officer or director of the Berkshire Entities, has engaged in any transaction in any shares of Common Stock during the sixty days immediately preceding the date hereof. Mr. Weschler has not engaged in any
transaction in any shares of Common Stock during the sixty days immediately preceding the date hereof.

(d); (e) Not applicable.

Item 6. Contracts, Arrangements, Understandings or Relationships with Respect to Securities of the Issuer

As previously reported on a Form 8-K filed May 7, 2013 by DVA, on May 7, 2013, DVA entered into a letter agreement (the
Standstill Agreement) with Berkshire, on behalf of itself and its affiliates (collectively, Investor) pursuant to which Investor agreed, subject to certain exceptions and to the termination provisions specified in the
Standstill Agreement, during any period during which Investor beneficially owns 15% or more of the then-outstanding Common Stock, not to acquire beneficial ownership of DVA exceeding 25% of DVAs then-outstanding Common Stock, and to certain
other provisions respecting stockholder proposals and meetings, mergers and other matters specified therein. In addition, under the Standstill Agreement, Investor agreed that from and after the first date that Mr. Buffett is no longer CEO of
Investor and Mr. Weschler is no longer an investment manager of Investor, Investor shall cause any shares of Common Stock beneficially owned by Investor in excess of 15% of the then-outstanding voting stock of DVA to vote or consent on any
matter in the same proportion as the votes or consents of shares of the voting stock of DVA voted or consented with respect to such matter (excluding shares with respect to which the votes were withheld, abstained or otherwise not cast) and not
beneficially owned by Investor.

As previously reported on a Form 3 filed May 24, 2013 by Mr. Weschler, Berkshire and
Mr. Weschler entered into the Letter Agreement with respect to Mr. Weschlers holdings of, and future transactions in, shares of Common Stock. Under the Letter Agreement, Mr. Weschler agreed that (i) he and Berkshire will
file as a group under Section 13 of the Exchange Act and (ii) for so long as Berkshire has holdings in securities of DVA, (1) he would not sell, on behalf of himself or on behalf of any member of his immediate family and
related entitles (including trusts of which he is trustee), or pursuant to a power of attorney or other trading authorization, any of the Common Stock owned as of the date of such letter, without Mr. Buffetts prior consent, and
(2) he would not purchase, on behalf of himself or on behalf of any member of his immediate family and related entitles (including trusts of which he is trustee), or pursuant to a power of attorney or other trading authorization, additional
shares of Common Stock or any other DVA security, without Mr. Buffetts prior consent, subject in each case to the other terms and conditions specified in the Letter Agreement.
