Following an investigation by the Indiana Medicaid Fraud Control Unit and the Indiana State Police a nurse and nurse practitioner from the Plymouth community were arrested on Thursday, June 22nd, and lodged in the Marshall County Jail. 

Nurse Practitioner Daniel Dale Tanner, 52, of Manor Drive in Plymouth, and his brother David A Tanner, 55, of Orchard Heights Drive in South Bend turned themselves into the County Jail and bonded out on Thursday. 

The two have been charged with felonies for work they conducted as it relates to Concierge Medicine at 105 Water Street in Plymouth.

According to Daniel Tanner has been charged with issuing an invalid prescription for legend drugs by a practitioner as a Level 6 Felony. The other two charges against him are a result of his hiring his brother David to practice as a nurse in the business knowing that David’s nursing license was indefinitely suspended in 2005.  While David served in the capacity of a nurse, he worked with patients taking vital signs, examining patients, recommending medications, and diagnosing patients while nurse practitioner Dan Tanner was out of the office. The other two charges are aiding, inducing, or causing the offense of practicing medicine without a license as a class 5 felony and aiding, inducing, or causing an offense of practicing nursing while the license is suspended. 

David Tanner has charges of practicing medicine without a license and practicing nursing while his license is suspended. 

After turning themselves in they were both able to bond out on $1,500 cash bonds.

Readers are reminded that charging information supported by an affidavit of probable cause is merely an allegation that a crime has been committed and that there is only probable cause to believe a crime has been committed. They are presumed innocent throughout the proceedings and are entitled to be represented by counsel and entitled to a trial jury at which the State is obligated to provide proof beyond a reasonable doubt before a judgment of guilt may be made.
