Hello

Medical expenses are the costs of diagnosis, cure, mitigation, treatment, or prevention of disease, and the costs for treatments affecting any part or function of the body.

Medical care expenses must be primarily to alleviate or prevent a physical or mental defect or illness. His doctor would have to write that he is required the bed for his specific treatment or condition.
