my doctor now does lots of insertion of Palate for patients with abused drugs, the CPT code that he uses for procedure is 11981 , can i bill for anesthesia for the same code with Modifier AA to ensure proper payment and reimbursement

Applicable Anesthesia Code with CPT code 11981 would be 00400.
You can append modifier-AA, if the anesthesia service was performed personally by an anaesthesiologist.
