    Do you have any guidelines for billing the 91122 Anal manometry. I found and old trailblazer article that indicates the MD must perform the service. We recently purchased the machine and just trying to research documentation etc.

    We aren't under Trailblazer in Georgia (we are CAHABA). But we have a nurse perform the procedure, the doctor is always on site, and the doctor does the reading. We haven't had any issues with that method.
