We have a new ARNP who is wanting to bill 90833 with her E/M visits when she is providing mental health guidance for a patient. I am just wondering if anyone has information specific to Kansas and if 90833 can only be billed by a Therapist or Mental health provider?

"Mental health guidance" is not psychotherapy. Most insurances will only allow a provider that is credentialed as a mental health provider to bill mental health CPT codes. Further, I would question whether that is in her scope of practice (meaning psychotherapy, not "guidance").
