AHIP said electronic claims rose from 44 percent in 2002 to 94 percent in 2011.But AHIP pressed doctors to file claims more quickly, saying 54 percent of paper claims were filed more than 30 days after the service was provided. Only 16 percent of electronic claims were filed after 30 days, AHIP said.
