(2) A copy of the disqualification notice shall also be sent to the bureau of state hearings and to the appropriate fraud control specialist.

(C) The notice shall include the following:

(1) The name of the individual to be disqualified.

(2) The program(s) from which the individual is to be disqualified.

(3) The basis for the disqualification.
