No. 79-2034, Blum v. Caldwell, was held for our decision in Beltran v. Myers. It involves the validity of a similar New York rule governing transfers of assets by "medically needy" recipients of Medicaid in that State. The rule bars applicants who have made such transfers for the purposing of obtaining eligibility, and creates a presumption that transfers made in the preceding 18 months were for this purpose.
