The Georgia Medical Board accepted the voluntary surrender of the Georgia medical license of Arlon Harm Jahnke, M.D., after he was convicted in the U.S. District Court in the Southern District of Florida, for one count of Violation of Title 18, USC, Section 371, Conspiracy to Receive Health Care Kickbacks in the U.S. District Court in the Southern District of Florida, US v. Arlon Jahnke, Case No. 16-20348-CR.
The charge against Dr. Jahnke relates to his sending prescription drug orders to a compounding pharmacy, who was overcharging patients primarily covered by TriCare Insurance Program, and who also issued payments to his wife to act as a Pharmaceutical Representative.
Dr. Jahnke was committed to the Federal Bureau of Prisons to be imprisoned for twelve months, followed by three years supervised release, and for twelve months of the three years, will be placed on home confinement. During home confinement, he would not be allowed to leave his home for anything other than work, his own doctor’s appointments and to attend worship services.
Per the terms of the Voluntary Surrender, Dr. Jahnke cannot apply for reinstatement for two years from the date of the surrender under the rules of the Board.
