    When through when

    A patient was in hospice from 03/01/15 throgh 05/01/15, so hospice period started on 03/01/15 and ended on 05/01/15.

    American insurance represenetive to me :- "we will pay claims for the whole month of may. Hospice period ended on 05/01/15, if they go through half of the month, coverage will go through whole month".

    Please check.

    I have one more question "How to ask, if I don't know about the member's hospice period. Hospice period when through when?". How to use "When through when?"

    Re: When through when

    Please capitalize months. Example: April, May, June.

    If you want to know how long a person was in the hospice you could say: "Exactly when did the person enter the hospice, and when did he/she leave the hospice?"

    tufguy, for the second time this month, note the correct spelling of 'representative'.

    Re: When through when

    Sorry. Representetive, what about my questions? I already knew this but I would like to know about these two formations.

    1 "When a patient goes through half of the month".

    2 "When through when".

    Does the spellchecker not alert you (to possible typos) as you're typing out your posts?

    I don't understand this at all. The dates mean 3rd January to 5th January to me. If you're writing this for an international audience, you need to use an internationally understandable date system.
    (In Australian and British English, dates are read "day/month/year".)

    Re: When through when

    But that would be confused by speakers of AmE. To satisfy everyone, the dates would have to be spelled out.

    Re: When through when

    Hence the use of "internationally understood date system".

    Saying "The patient was in the hospice from 3rd February to 5th February inclusive" shouldn't confuse anyone.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I wasn't suggesting to use the British system. I was suggesting to use an internationally understood system, and then I gave a reason.
    Eg. use: 1 Jan 2010, March 6th 1901 ...
