    I suppose you could just write a function to handle formatting the two specific sections (e..g the first four characters, a dash, then the last two characters) :

    var input = "201509";
    var output = String.Format("{0}-{1}",input.Substring(0,4),input.Substring(4)); // yields "2014-09"

    There are quite a few ways to handle this (using a Regular Expression, parsing your string as a DateTime object and then formatting it, etc.), but this might be the most straightforward. You can see a working example of it here.
