Significant decisions

A significant decision is a Board of Appeals (BOA) final order that has an analysis or decision of substantial importance to HCA in carrying out its duties. A significant decision is precedential, which means that future parties, administrative law judges, and review judges may rely on it in similar cases.

The HCA's BOA maintains this index.
