Medical expenses

Is the medical deduction based off of amount paid in the year or amount incurred in the year? I have medical expenses exceeding $25,000, that havent been paid, but are awaiting judgement in civil court.

It is based on the amount actually paid during the tax year, 2016, regardless of when the services were received or billed.
