Client Services

Over the years, the music industry has evolved into an amazing worldwide network of individuals and multinational conglomerates grossing more than $50 billion a year. Yet, disturbingly, the very people whose creativity and ingenuity fuel this massive cash machine have few places to turn in troubled times. The tragic health and financial hardships faced by too many members of our musical family prompted the Recording Academy's establishment of the MusiCares Foundation more than 20 years ago.

It is the mission of MusiCares to ensure that music people have a place to turn in times of financial, medical or personal crisis. Its primary purpose is to focus the attention and resources of the music industry on human services issues that directly impact the health and welfare of music people.

MusiCares Medical Network

To better address the ever-growing number of music professionals without basic medical coverage, MusiCares works closely with a dedicated group of health care professionals through the MusiCares Medical Network to provide the valuable and often life-changing services that some clients require, but simply cannot afford. The network is comprised of providers who recognize this reality and generously donate their time and expertise to treat MusiCares' referrals that are uninsured and lack the means to pay for services. Through the efforts of these professionals our clients are able to access specialty care that may not otherwise be available to them. MusiCares would like to recognize the following network partners for their generosity and support of the music community through their ongoing commitment to MusiCares and the clients we serve. If you're a music professional in need of medical or dental care, please contact MusiCares for more information and to apply*.

Appointments can only be made through MusiCares. Please do not contact providers directly.

* Applicants must be uninsured without means to pay for health services and able to document at least five years employment in the music industry, or credits on at least six commercially released tracks.
