Yes, your 3 weeks MC at home will be deducted from the sick leave. Some will like to have their excess sick leave to be deducted from annual leave but in your case you like to do it the other way. Anyway, arrange with your employer the way you want. Normally, it is deducted from annual leave so that the take-home pay will not be reduced.

clarification, what if nad claims that 3 weeks as hospitalisation but to be rested at home. That would not affect his medical leave but could be deducted from hospitalisation leave? ( provided the doc could say he should be hospitalised but he wanted to be cared at home and also cheaper>>!)
