Chapter 525. Regulations for Physician Assistant Scholarships

12VAC5-525-130. Deferments, waivers, and variances.

A. In the event that a recipient is unable to find employment at an approved practice site or complete physician assistant school, a recipient may request a deferment of service obligation to secure employment at an approved practice site or to complete physician assistant school in Virginia.

If the recipient is in default due to death or permanent disability so as not to be able to engage in primary care practice in a region designated as a HPSA or VMUA in the Commonwealth, the recipient or his personal representative may be relieved of his obligation under the contract to engage in practice, upon repayment of the total amount of scholarship award received plus applicable interest. For recipients completing part of the obligation prior to becoming permanently disabled or in the event of death, the total amount of scholarship funds owed shall be reduced by the proportion of obligated years served. The obligation to make restitution may be waived by the board upon application of the recipient or the recipient's personal representative to the board.

B. Individual cases of undue hardship may be considered for a variance by the board of payment or service pursuant to § 32.1-12 of the Code of Virginia.

C. A variance, waiver, or deferment request must be submitted in writing to the department and be approved by the board. These requests shall be submitted on a Variance/Hardship Form.
