(a) Any person who suffers from epilepsy, diabetes, a cardiac condition, or any other type of illness which causes temporary blackouts, semiconscious periods, or complete unconsciousness is authorized to wear an identification bracelet or metal tag or carry an identification card with the person's name, type of illness, physician's name, and medication required engraved, stamped, or imprinted thereon.
