So excited for this win! Really nice to have your client reimbursed for her attorney's fees when she had to hire you to get wrongs righted, through no fault of her own!
Excited to get this case resolved in favor of my client!
When you get off the phone with your lawyer at 930 on a Friday night because she's called to tearfully tell you that, over a year after your daughter was in the hospital, after you've exhausted three appeals with the insurance company, and after already having her complaint turned down once by the Texas Department of Insurance, she muscled her way to a higher-up, insisted folks acknowledge her legal argument, and congratulates you that our insurance company finally FINALLY owned up to their responsibility to our daughter and to us. Vulnerable families fighting insurance companies, please seek out . Sandy is a mom and a fighter and she's freed us from this whole nightmarish ordeal.❤️

"Sandy was able to step in and represent us regarding a long term insurance denial for my elderly mother. Sandy jumped right on the case, even corresponding while on vacation. In a short time, my mother’s policy was reinstated and we received much needed back pay. Couldn’t have done it without her."

How Often Do Health Insurers Say No to Patients? No One Knows. 06/28/2023

How Often Do Health Insurers Say No to Patients? No One Knows. Insurers’ denial rates — a critical measure of how reliably they pay for customers’ care — remain mostly secret to the public. Federal and state regulators have done little to change that.

Proud to have settled a case on behalf of my clients this past week. Their interior designer stole thousands of dollars from them. Suit was filed and yet defendant was non-responsive to all efforts. It took going outside the box to gain leverage and settle this battle. Every single cent paid back to my clients including all of their attorneys fees! ⚖️💥 BayneLaw

"Sandy,
A one-time exception has been made in regards to the procedure. Please see the attached response.
- Blue Cross Blue Shield of Texas"

AHHHHH!!!!!!! An amazing and unexpected win!!!! Client has a brain tumor, recommended treatment denied as "Experimental/Investigational." Not after I got involved!
Over $200,000 in medical expenses previously denied- COVERED!!! Please, please, fight unjust denials. Justice will be done. Patients who are sick should not have to worry about the added stress of fighting unjust denials. I just received the news a few minutes ago, and I have to admit, I was bawling crying.

Workers Can’t Be Fired for LGBT Status, U.S. Supreme Court Says 06/15/2020

Today the U.S. Supreme Court issued a landmark ruling that existing civil rights law protects LGBT workers. Specifically, workers cannot be discriminated against due to sexual orientation or gender identity. It was a 6-3 decision, authored by traditionally conservative Gorsuch. ⚖️🏳️‍🌈🏳️‍🌈🏳️‍🌈🏳️‍🌈

Dr. X gets notified from BlueCross BlueShield Texas that they are going to terminate him from all of their networks in a few months. This would cause significant financial damage to Dr. X's practice. Enter stage right, BayneLaw, first level appeal filed. We insisted that someone in the same specialty sit on the appeal panel who was familiar with the standard of care, because, shocker, sometimes, allergists decide the standard of care for surgeons! Not even a week later, termination REVERSED!!! Great news during these difficult times. Great win before heading on vacation! Lllama a BayneLaw, se habla espanol! ☺️

I am SO proud of this win! Client had over $200,000 in denied cardiac medical bills!! All claims denied as “pre-existing conditions” which many don’t realize can be a legitimate denial under a short-term health insurance policy. Initial appeal upheld the denial, so we appealed to an independent review organization. The IRO overturned the denial, client now cleared of the crushing $200,000 debt!! 💥💪🏼

Buyer beware! I have seen too many unfortunate cases involving people that think that pre-existing condition exclusions do not apply to their policies...talk to your broker in detail- if it is a short term policy, pre-existing conditions can and WILL be excluded!

- Shoutout to that opposing counsel who likes to remind us of what practice was like before we were born. Have you encountered this, and if so, how do you handle?

I am SO excited and happy for my client- not only did I help her (and her health care providers) recover over $15,000 in medical bill payment, I also got all of her attorney's fees reimbursed. Win, win, win!!

91-year old woman gets a discharge notice the DAY AFTER her son files an internal complaint about the quality of care she was receiving at her assisted living facility. The facility wouldn't budge and insisted that she had to leave the facility in 30 days despite that being her home for 2 years. Once I was hired, we fought the discharge hard pointing out the multitude of regulatory and contractual violations. I am proud to say that we just received notice of RESCISSION of the discharge.

Thank you Amanda Luetzelschwab Hill for the referral!

"I hired Sandy Bayne to help me with a time-sensitive assisted living situation with my mother. Ms. Bayne was very responsive throughout the process and we were able to achieve our goal. Ms. Bayne has a great deal of expertise and provided excellent representation. I highly recommend Sandy Bayne."

Jury delivers $25.5 million 'statement' to Aetna to change its ways 11/13/2018

Jury delivers $25.5 million 'statement' to Aetna to change its ways An Oklahoma jury has awarded $25.5 million to the family of a cancer patient denied coverage by Aetna, with jurors saying that the insurer acted "recklessly" and that the verdict was meant as a message for Aetna to change its ways.

Proud to share a client review of a recent case we settled. Family purchased travelers insurance for a trip to Costa Rica...daughter's appendix ruptures in rural town, gets air flighted to capitol of foreign country in an air ambulance, family been fighting bill of $70,000+ because insurance company refused to pay the air ambulance bil. Family had been fighting this nightmare for over three years. I'm proud to say that BayneLaw settled the matter in a few months resulting in the family not owing a single penny.

Families should not have to hire attorneys to ensure that covered services are paid, but, when they do, I'm here to help!

"Amazing and Conscientious Lawyer- After several years of back and forth with my travel insurer who was denying my claim for expensive but necessary air evacuation services in a foreign country, I was unable to find resolution -- so I engaged Sandy's help. She dug right into the case, quickly created the necessary leverage for us and then brought all parties to the table, ultimately leading to a great resolution. She works quickly, yet she's thorough; she's highly responsive, but always thoughtful, and above all, Sandy is a partner who truly cares about your situation and works with diligence to solve your case."

Grateful for a wonderful outcome against Blue Cross in favor of a family fighting for coverage!

"Sandy Bayne was hired to assist our family appeal the denial of multiple healthcare claims with our insurance provider.
