You can pick the category such as the one toward the end of the medical section where it asks about any other medical expense and allows you to list a description and an amount.  Then, enter a description such as 'total medical expense' and your total.

The different categories are there to remind you of everything that can be claimed as a medical expense.  Everything can be lumped together in one total except for the insurance costs, which need to be kept separate.
