Yes and no...it depends on where your claim is at in the appeals process. The VA has a duty to assist (actual regulation), so they have to allow you a C&P if one hasn't already been provided for you OR the one you had was not suficient to rate. If you have already had a C&P, but are not happy with the results then the VA has more discretion I believe. Even if they refuse another official C&P because you've already had one they must accept any civilian examinations as new evidence, which can bring up the greater of two evaluations regulations and/or reasonable doubt.

Jay - I had a C&P in 2002 for PTSD ended up with a 100% rating in 2003.

I filed additional claims for physical disabilities all were denied March 2005.

Stated no nexus to service connection. It is my belief that a VA provided

C&P examination would conclude nexus for service connection. Anyhow,

I plan on submitting an NOD with New evidence and a request for a C&P.

Considering all the AO diseases you will probably get SC'ed for something in the future. I got SC for five AO conditions after getting IU.
