This depends more on carrier rules than anything else. I would say check with your carriers regarding CRNA policies. We have carriers that pay them and those that don't. For example, BCBS of Alabama does not cover services rendered by CRNAs, but AL Medicaid does. So, my answer is yes, CRNAs can place and bill for labor epidurals depending on carrier policy.
