You claim medical based on the date of the expense.  You cannot split any one expense but you can claim up to any date in 2015 for the current year and then start on the next day in the next year ending on that date in 2016.  For example, claim Jan 1 to March 15  2105 this year and then March 16 2015 to March 15 2016 on the 2016 tax return.
