Medical Expenses when not belonging to a medical aid?

I am on my wife's medical aid. June' 14 our funds in our medical savings account ran out. Since then I have been paying cash for prescription medication and various tests, etc. Can I claim the out of pocket medical expenses from SARS as it amounts to almost R 18k.
