ESA cont to income and letter

HI wondering if someone could help.

I had an esa work related assessment back on 24tyh December and just received my letter today.

First off it states future work capability assesments: We won't ask you to go for another assesment unless there is a change in your helth condition.

Does this mean no more assesments ? if so this is life saver i have had so many in the last 2 - 3 years I even had one the day I came out of hospital after my spinal op ;/.

Second of all I have always been on ESA contributions based for like 9 years IB/ESA C but the letter now sates Income based. I phoned the DWP to ask for this they said that due to income and contributions I am not part paid contributions and the rest income related and for all purposes i can now get prescriptions and dental .  I always thought I would be contributions based do they often do this ?
