PITTSBURGH - A former Mercer County chiropractor will spend three years in prison for defrauding an insurance company.

Thirty-eight-year-old Brent J. Detelich, of Clearwater, Fla., was sentenced Friday in U.S. District Court in Pittsburgh. A jury convicted him of health care and mail fraud in March 2007.

Prosecutors say Detelich submitted fraudulent claims to Highmark Blue Cross/Blue Shield for services not rendered. He then split the payments from those claims with some patients.

Detelich did business as Detelich Chiropractic, and Advanced Medical and Holistic of Hermitage, about 60 miles northwest of Pittsburgh.

He must also pay $91,025 in restitution to Highmark. And he'll be on supervised release for two years after his release from prison.
