CMS sup­ports Freseni­us Med­ic­al Care Ukraine LLC in win­ning a land­mark case...
CMS RRH Ky­iv has suc­cess­fully sup­por­ted Freseni­us Med­ic­al Care Ukraine LLC in a com­mer­cial dis­pute against a pub­lic health­care pro­vider be­fore the Su­preme Court. The Su­preme Court’s de­cision in the land­mark case sets out pos­it­ive Su­preme Court prac­tice for sev­er­al identic­al cases con­cern­ing Freseni­us cur­rently be­ing con­sidered in courts of dif­fer­ent in­stances. Freseni­us Med­ic­al Care is the world's lead­ing pro­vider of products and ser­vices for in­di­vidu­als with ren­al dis­eases and is a long-stand­ing CMS cli­ent. As a lead­ing hemo­dia­lys­is treat­ment pro­vider, Freseni­us has es­tab­lished hemo­dia­lys­is centres in two Ukrain­i­an re­gions with­in a state-fun­ded pro­gramme to provide hemo­dia­lys­is treat­ment for pa­tients whom pub­lic health­care pro­viders are in­cap­able of treat­ing. The treat­ment was provided un­der sep­ar­ate agree­ments between Freseni­us Med­ic­al Care Ukraine LLC and each pub­lic hos­pit­al, con­cluded with­in pub­lic pro­cure­ment pro­ced­ures. Due to the fail­ure by hos­pit­als to ini­ti­ate each con­sequent pub­lic pro­cure­ment pro­ced­ure in a timely man­ner, there were gap peri­ods when the ser­vices were provided but were not covered by writ­ten agree­ments. While Freseni­us Med­ic­al Care Ukraine LLC was ob­liged un­der Ukrain­i­an law to con­tin­ue treat­ing the pa­tients, the hos­pit­als re­fused to pay for these ser­vices. After be­ing un­able to re­cov­er pay­ments from the hos­pit­als through pre-tri­al ne­go­ti­ations, Freseni­us Med­ic­al Care Ukraine LLC, rep­res­en­ted by CMS, pro­ceeded by filling five claims against five hos­pit­als in one of the stated re­gions. CMS won all five claims in the first in­stance; how­ever, be­cause of in­con­sist­ency in Su­preme Court prac­tice, three of the first in­stance court’s de­cisions were over­ruled in the ap­peal court. CMS has fur­ther suc­cess­fully de­fen­ded Freseni­us Med­ic­al Care Ukraine LLC claims with­in the first cas­sa­tion ap­peal sup­port­ing the mo­tiv­a­tion of an earli­er Su­preme Court de­cision in an identic­al mat­ter and provid­ing per­suas­ive ar­gu­ments to dis­miss later neg­at­ive Su­preme Court prac­tice. In Oc­to­ber 2021 the Su­preme Court has once again re­viewed the mat­ter of pay­ments dur­ing the gap peri­ods and has ac­cep­ted CMS’s ar­gu­ments to sat­is­fy Freseni­us’s Med­ic­al Care Ukraine LLC claims against one the pub­lic hos­pit­als. This dis­pute res­ol­u­tion mat­ter was handled by CMS RRH Ky­iv Dis­pute Res­ol­u­tion team, led by Anna Po­grebna and Oleksandr Prot­si­uk, with sup­port from Di­ana Valyeyeva. If you have any ques­tions, please con­tact Oleksandr Prot­si­uk for more in­form­a­tion.
