hat tip-RobM


The U.S. military reportedly halted flights carrying Haitian earthquake victims to the United States, allegedly because of a dispute over payment and where seriously injured patients should be taken for treatment.

The apparent halt came one day after Florida Gov. Charlie Crist wrote a letter to U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, warning, “Florida’s health care system is quickly reaching saturation, especially in the area of high level trauma care.”
But officials in Crist’s office said they didn’t know of any Florida hospitals turning away patients. He asked Sebelius to activate the National Disaster Medical System, which is typically used in domestic disasters and pays for victims’ care.

“Good Morning America Weekend” anchor Kate Snow spoke with Gov. Charlie Crist by phone from Miami.

Good Morning.
