Under our decree has to reimburse our daughters medical expenses, within the 30 days, ex spouse has to pay half. I have to provide him with the bill within 30 days, which I have paid and sent bill and receipt. (Our daughter was hospitalized). So it's a bit of a higher bill but I gave him fair warnings before the bill came when the EOBs started coming. He mentioned he doesn't have all the money to pay me the day IK sent it and wanted to talk about setting up something, which since, I have asked him several times and he is now ignoring me.
Unfortunately, your ultimate recourse is to go back to court. You could always try an attorney demand letter first, but if that doesn't work, only a court can issue orders or penalties to try to enforce.

Any statements exchanged do not form an attorney-client relationship, and you should not rely on said statements in place of seeking advice from an attorney for your specific matter.
Bad news is that you will have to take him back to court to enforce the Order to reimburse you. Good news is that MOST judges will award reimbursement of your attorney fees and costs for having to bring the motion to Court. You must have proof that the medical bills were sent and proof you tried to resolve the issue prior to filing a motion.
You should speak with a family law attorney to discuss your particular situation.
