If the MDA has seen the patient, done the pre-anesthesia work (assessment/exam/etc) and then the surgery is cancelled for whatever reason, the MDA can bill for an inpatient consultation, as long as appropriate documentation supports this. There is no appropriate modifier to be used with the CPT code for the procedure, or the anesthesia CPT (depending on what internal process you and your software use).
