  (3) A physician who allows his or her license to be canceled following nonpayment while under a suspension order of the board must also demonstrate that his or her return to the practice of medicine is in the physician's and the public's best interest as defined under Chapter 167 of this title (relating to Reinstatement and Reissuance).
