# member months in medical enrollment

Greeting experts
Back with another question. Thanks in advance for any help

For this question I have two table I am concerned with, called membe and member hp

Member looks like
Memberkey int (fk)
Membid varchar (15) (pk)
Lastnm varcahr  (50)
Firstnm varchar  varchar (50)

Membhp looks like

Memberkey  int  (pk)
Currhist char (1)  -- C for Current, H for history meaning the data is for the current
enrollment or the historical enrolment.
Opfromdt   -- Date they were enrolled
Opthrudt    -- date they were terminated

The member can have many entries in membhp as they can come on the plan a lot

What I do not know how to do is determine is  how many months a member has been on the plan, if there has been a break from their time on the plan.
So say I want to know how many months a member x.
Member x has been on the plan from  04/01/2004 to 03/01/2005 . They came back on the plan on 04/01/2005 and are set to terminate 01/01/2079.

How do I determine how many moths from 01/01/2005 to 12/31/2005 the member has been on the plan for.
If this is not clear ask me to clarify and I will, if I can.

Thanks in advance for any help

Try this!

select Member.Memberkey, Member.Membid,Member.Lastnm,Member.Firstnm ,sum(datediff(month,Member.Opfromdt,Member.Opthrudt)) from Member
inner join Membhp on Membhp.Memberkey =Member.Memberkey
where Member.Membid='x'
group by Member.Memberkey, Member.Membid,Member.Lastnm,Member.Firstnm

If you try to calculate months until today, try this

select Member.Memberkey, Member.Membid,Member.Lastnm,Member.Firstnm ,sum(datediff(month,Member.Opfromdt,Member.Opthrudt)) from Member
inner join
(select Memberkey,Currhist ,Opfromdt,
case when Opthrudt>getdate() then getdate()
else Opthrudt
end
as Opthrudt from Membhp where Opfromdt<getdate()) as Membhp
on Membhp.Memberkey =Member.Memberkey
where Member.Membid='x'
group by Member.Memberkey, Member.Membid,Member.Lastnm,Member.Firstnm

Close to what I am looking for.
The problem I have is that member x may have multiple times that he is enrolled and disenrolled.
So say I need to know how many months between 01/01/2005 and 12/31/2005.
lets say he has two different enrollment ftimes
opfromdt 7/01/2004  opthrudt 02/01/2005
opfromdt 03/01/2005 opthrudt  01/01/2079
now the way the above is written I would get 14 months enrolled.
When what I am looking for should be the 11 months that they were enrolled in 2005.
Does that make sense?

Thanks

OK, you need count in specifed duration
thy this.

select Member.Memberkey, Member.Membid,Member.Lastnm,Member.Firstnm ,sum(datediff(month,Member.Opfromdt,Member.Opthrudt)) from Member
inner join
(select Memberkey,Currhist ,
case when Opfromdt<'01/01/2005' then '01/01/2005'
else Opfromdt
end as Opfromdt
,
case when Opthrudt>'12/31/2005' then '12/31/2005'
else Opthrudt
end
as Opthrudt from Membhp where Opfromdt<'12/31/2005' and Opthrudt>'01/01/2005') as Membhp
on Membhp.Memberkey =Member.Memberkey
where Member.Membid='x'
group by Member.Memberkey, Member.Membid,Member.Lastnm,Member.Firstnm
