If the fleet is already at sea conducting military exercises, I wouldn't think diverting in response to a medical emergency would be a big deal.
It is a big deal when it causes a disruption in the exercise. That could impact thousands of people involved in the exercise and cost $$$$$ because they have to put things on hold. In this case I haven't heard anything about the billing so assume the Navy took their payment in the form of good press about the story.
