Is it usual to have an ESA assessment form again so soon?

Hi. I'm needing a bit of advice as the mum and appointee of our son who has M.E. (also dyslexia & dyspraxia). Our son is currently getting ESA (Support group) awarded last year. The change from DLA (which he was also getting) to PIP was turned down (after appeal and tribunal). It was only a year ago that the ESA was awarded. We have just received another Capability for Work questionnaire. Is it usual for them to be requested annually? It seems very quick, and very coincidental with the PIP refusal (the tribunal was last month) and a request that we made for refunding of dental costs. It's only very recently that I realised that he is entitled to free prescriptions dental and optician care. We have been paying these costs for years. Is it usual to have an ESA assessment form again so soon? Any comments appreciated. Thank you.
