RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Gov. Pat McCrory has taken a first-hand look at North Carolina's new Medicaid claims billing system.

McCrory and Health and Human Service Secretary Aldona Wos (vahsh) on Tuesday visited the operations and call centers for the vendor hired to build and run the computer network. The system went online July 1.

The state health agency says the "NCTracks" billing program has processed more than 2.25 million claims since its first week of operation.

A statement from McCrory's office said total payments to North Carolina providers this week will exceed $137 million, which includes payment for all backlogged claims that had accumulated in the 10-day transition from old to new claims systems.

The computer network replaced a system first turned on in 1977.
