HCS/HB 207 - This act allows for medical alert notations to be placed on driver's licenses and non-driver's identification cards for post-traumatic stress disorder, diabetes, heart conditions, epilepsy, drug allergies, Alzheimer's or dementia, or other conditions as approved by the Department of Revenue.
Persons applying for a medical alert notation shall waive liability for the release of any medical information to the Department, anyone eligible for access to such medical information recorded on a driving record, and any other person who may view or receive notice of the medical information by virtue of having seen the license. The application shall include a space for applicants to obtain a sworn statement from a licensed physician or licensed psychologist verifying the diagnosis.
Individuals who have been issued licenses or identification cards bearing medical alert information may be issued a replacement that does not bear the medical alert information upon payment of the fee applicable to lost licenses or cards.
No medical alert information shall be printed on or removed from a license or identification card without the express consent of the licensee, or parent or guardian.
Medical alert information collected under the act shall be transferred to the Missouri Uniform Law Enforcement System (MULES), and notice of this transfer and of the use of the MULES shall be included on the medical alert notation application and consent documents.
This act has a delayed effective date of July 31, 2020.
This act is identical to provisions in HCS/SB 371 (2019), and similar to provisions in HB 1613 (2018) and SCS/HCS/HBs 2277 & 1983 (2018).
