Abstract (Summary)

The expansion of the parity law for mental health benefits under the Patient Protection Affordable Care Act (PPACA) along with the increased mental and/or behavioral health issue among American youth has established a need for various health services to mitigate the mental and/or behavioral health problem. The L.A. Children’s Music Therapy Center, LLC, will be established to provide music therapy as an alternative or complementary form of medicine for individuals that are under 17 years of age with mental and/or behavioral health disorders. Additional regulations under the PPACA may potentially increase the use of mental health services and clinical evidence has shown that music therapy has resulted in improved health outcomes for various disorders. L.A. Children’s Music Therapy Center, LLC, will focus on providing music therapy services within Los Angeles County for private clients in the community as well as contracting services for private and group organizations.
