Granular tracking of reimbursed expenses

I've been using an overarching Assets:Reimbursable account to handle my
reimbursable expenses. I'd like to be able to see how much I've been
reimbursed in the current period for specific costs, to make sure that I
don't exceed my insurance's annual maximums. For example, 80% of my
physiotherapy costs are reimbursed up to a maximum of $750 per year,
which I would like to stay within.
With my current setup, when I incur the expense, 20% is assigned to a
health expense account and the other 80% to reimbursable, but the 80% is
then subtracted off of that account when I'm reimbursed and the account
returns to zero, so there's no obvious way to me to do this cumulative
kind of tracking. I don't want to determine the how much has been
reimbursed by multiplying my health expense account total by four (80% ÷
20%) for a few reasons, notably because it would be broken by the fact
that my expenses become 100% reimbursable after I hit an overall annual
out-of-pocket maximum of $400.
Is there an easy fix that I'm missing?
Thanks so much for your help!
