(a) Notwithstanding any other provisions of these regulations to the contrary, any vendor against whom a judgment of conviction has been rendered in any state or federal court of a crime involving fraud in said programs shall be terminated from participation. Termination shall be effective upon conviction, except that the Commissioner may delay termination for a period he deems sufficient to protect the health and well-being of beneficiaries receiving goods and/or services from such vendor.

The notification shall inform the vendor of his/her ineligibility for reimbursement for any goods provided or services performed directly by, or under the supervision of, said vendor for the period of termination, and of the right to a hearing, provided the request is filed with the Commissioner in writing within ten (10) days of the notice date.
(c) The scope of the hearing shall be limited to (1) whether the vendor was convicted, (2) whether the conviction is related to the vendor's participation in programs conducted by the Department of Income Maintenance, (3) whether the amount of restitution sought by the Department is accurate, and (4) the appropriateness of the period of termination.

(1) The number and nature of the program violations and other related offenses;
(2) The nature and extent of any adverse impact the violations have had on beneficiaries;
(3) The amount of damages incurred by Medicaid, or other social service programs for which the Department is responsible;
