Representing temporary costs

I am going to RE, my wife will work 3-4 year past, and when she retires, we will have to pay for healthcare out of pocket... until Medicare kicks in (about 5 yrs). How can I represent this ~$18K cost in firecalc?

Assuming I want to show it as a cost during those years, but not until "the end", how do I do it? Only way that I could think of was in Portfolio Changes as a subtract when it starts, then "add" in the same amount when it ends?

Doesn't look like "Off Chart" can be used for that (?). I want it to be considered as a temporary load/draw on the portfolio.
