The law does not allow other types of physicians to write qualifying recommendations, nor does it allow for patients with any other conditions to obtain legal protections. Qualifying patients must obtain a state registry ID card, which became available in 2015, in order to receive legal protection; qualifying patients may designate a caregiver to assist them.
