Chapter 508. Regulations Governing the Virginia Physician Loan Repayment Program

12VAC5-508-230. Breach of contract.

A. The following may constitute breach of contract:

1. Participant's failure to begin or complete his term of obligated service under the terms and conditions of the Virginia Physician Loan Repayment Program contract, regardless of the length of the agreed period of obligated service;

2. Participant's falsification or misrepresentation of information on the program application or verification forms or other required documents; or

3. Termination of participant's employment for good cause, as determined by the employer and confirmed by the department. If employment is terminated for reasons beyond the participant's control (e.g., closure of site), the participant shall transfer to another approved site in an HPSA, a VMUA, an approved geriatrics fellowship, or a state or local institution within six months of termination. Failure of the participant to find a transfer site within this time limit shall be deemed to be a breach of the contract.

B. In the event of a breach of contract, the participant shall make default payments as described in 12VAC5-508-260 and in accordance with the terms of the contract. In the event of a breach of contract where the participant has partially fulfilled his obligation, the total amount of reimbursement shall be prorated by the proportion of obligation completed.
