Orthodontist agrees to $800K settlement

The state attorney general’s office announced Wednesday that John Burke has also agreed to resign as a MassHealth provider and not treat any new patients.

Burke, who was among the highest-billing MassHealth orthodontists, receiving close to $5.5 million from September 2006 through August 2011, was initially referred to the attorney general by MassHealth following a review of his billing.

The office found that Burke took certain X-rays not permitted by MassHealth regulations.

A message was left for Burke at his office.
