    Yes, you can bill those together. They are two seperate procedures. One is for steralization and the other usually for menorrhagia. My docs do these bolth together all the time. I bill 58565 then 58563 with a 51. I have never had problems getting these paid unless of course it is not a covered benefit under the patients plan. Hope that helps good luck
