there is a substantial likelihood that the provider's practice, which is the basis for the department's determination made under part 9505.2200, subpart 4, will continue in the future;
there is reasonable cause to doubt the provider's financial ability to repay the amount determined to be due; or
The commissioner shall not order a prehearing suspension or withholding of payments to a nursing home or convalescent care facility.
