        health assistance' has the meaning given the term child health 
        assistance in section 2110(a) as if any reference to targeted

                of a child who would be a targeted low-income child but 
                for the child's eligibility for medical assistance 
                under title XIX; and
                    ``(B) otherwise satisfies the requirements for a 
                child to be a targeted low-income child (as described 
                in section 2110(b)).
            ``(3) Parent.--The term `parent' means an individual who is 
        a caretaker relative of a child described in paragraph (2)(A). 
        Such term includes parents, stepparents with whom the child 
        resides, appointed guardians, grandparents, and other 
        relatives.
    ``(c) References to Terms and Special Rules.--In the case of, and 
with respect to, a State providing for coverage of parental health 
assistance to targeted low-income parents under subsection (a), the 
following special rules apply:
            ``(1) Any reference in this title (other than in subsection 
        (b)) to a targeted low-income child is deemed to include a 
        reference to a targeted low-income parent.
            ``(2) Any such reference to child health assistance with 
        respect to such a parent is deemed a reference to parental 
        health assistance.
            ``(3) Any such reference to a child (other than in section 
        2104(b)) is deemed a reference to a parent of such child.
            ``(4) In applying section 2103(e)(3)(B) in the case of a 
        parent provided coverage under this section, the limitation on 
        total annual aggregate cost-sharing shall be applied to the 
        entire family.
            ``(5) Section 2105(c)(3) shall be applied without regard to 
        subparagraph (A).
            ``(6) Section 1905(u)(2)(A) shall be applied as if any 
        reference to optional targeted low-income children includes a 
        reference to targeted low-income parents.
    ``(d) Rules of Construction.--Nothing in this section shall be 
construed--
            ``(1) as affecting--
                    ``(A) the total amount available for allotments 
                under section 2104(a); or
                    ``(B) the amount of the allotment provided to a 
                State under section 2104(b); or
            ``(2) as requiring a State to provide parental health 
        assistance to all targeted low-income parents.''.
    (b) Effective Date.--The amendment made by this section applies to
