No - that is unless they grant care through fee basis.

Im at 40 % at present or is there a percent that is needed to receive that type of benefit?

There is no SC'd percentage evaluation that makes a provision for payment of any private

medical care.

At 50% SC the VA is to take care of any medical (except dental) and medication needs, but without

fee basis it would need to be done at VA facilities.

As Mike stated the new VA bill might change current VA policy regarding approval to use private medical providers but I believe you would have to live more than 40 miles away from the nearest VA medical facility or have been waiting more than 30 days for an appointment at a VA facility. I might be wrong.
