It postulates that development continues throughout an individual 's lifespan in relation to changes in health, illness, loss, and awareness of personal mortality through intrapersonal, interpersonal, temporal and transpersonal expansion (Bohner, 2017; Joireman & Duell, 2005). Self-transcendence is proposed to facilitate the integration of complex and conflicting elements of living, aging, and dying (Fresson et al., 2017). The theory is applicable to many contexts of healthcare, to healthy and to dying patients, to understanding what promotes well-being in patients and to the study of nurses and other care providers who work with ill individuals (Fresson et al., 2017). Thus, the aim of this paper is twofold: to identify theorist’s background, the paradigmatic origins and internal dimensions of the theory of self-transcendence and to trace major developments of the theory in research and practice aspects and discover factors that influenced changes in the
In the United States, Medicare is the program supports people over age 65 with medical care. It also provides support for persons with certain disabilities and people of all ages who have kidney failure. Medicaid is a state administered program that provides medical support for a broad range of people.

In the hospitals, the current Medicare payment mechanism was implemented by Health Care Financing Administration in 1984 using the outpatient prospective payment system (OPPS) to reimburse hospitals for treating Medicare patients (Centers for Medicare and Medicaid, 2010). Physicians however are reimbursed by Medicare by creating the Resource Based Relative Value Scale (RBRVS) that was enacted in 1989 and led to the development of relative value units (RVU) (Medicare Payment Advisory Commission, 2013) for each of the physician-related services paid for in the traditional Medicare program (Patel, K., 2012). Kaiser Permanente uses a pre-program Outside Claims Processing System (OCPS) system where physician are paid using Medicare conversion factor by entering the zip code for the visit (LA zip code 90095), typing in the doctor’s office visit (CPT code 99213) would have a corresponding dollar value ($78.91) for that date of service (Figure
Medicare recognizes long term care hospitals (LTHs), inpatient rehabilitation facilities (IRFs), and skilled nursing facilities (SNFs) as settings for post-acute care. The elements involved with the LTHs are: MS-LTC-DRG patient classification, prospective provider agreement with Medicare, and average length of stay. The calculation for direct GME payments: MS-LTC-DRG, relative weight X federal rate = unadjusted payment. The elements involved with the IRFs are: rates, classification principles and reasonable and necessary criteria.

Curing costs billions, but caring comes from the soul.” Futurists have predicted that in the twenty-first century, ambulatory care will be just as important to hospitals as acute care, that more than fifty percent of the average hospital’s revenues will come from ambulatory services. Outpatient specialty procedures now include, ophthalmology, OB-Gyn, ENT, orthopedic, general, plastic, podiatry, urology, gastroenterology, pain block, and neurology. Medicare and Medicaid acceptance and reimbursement is a primary factor in the development of hospital facilities.
