More than 900,000 insurance claims have been filed since January 1 on behalf of Highmark insurance customers who received care from UPMC providers and facilities, 97 percent of those claims were processed and paid.

The remaining three percent, or 30,000 claims, were not paid as a result of the dispute and will now be paid for by Highmark.
