The Prelude Network™ Celebrates National Veteran and Military Families Month; Extends Accessibility to Premium Fertility Services to Active Duty Service Members, Veterans

The Prelude Network™ (Prelude), the largest network of fertility clinics and providers in North America, celebrates National Veteran and Military Families Month by extending accessibility to premium reproductive services to members of the US Armed Forces. Prelude’s Military Families campaign answers the growing need for access to top-tiered fertility services for military members.

Throughout November, all Prelude clinics are offering special promotions to active and retired military for a range of services, including consultations, ultrasounds, bloodwork, and treatment options like intrauterine insemination (IUI) and in vitro fertilization (IVF) regardless of their background, sexual orientation, or reason for needing assisted reproductive medicine.

“At Inception Fertility, we believe everyone has a right to understand their fertility options and build their families, and that couldn’t be truer for the brave men and women who give up so much for our own freedoms,” says TJ Farnsworth, Founder and CEO of Inception Fertility, the parent company to Prelude. “We are excited to extend accessibility to fertility care to our service men and women and raise awareness around their fertility challenges while providing them with solutions.”

Historically, accessing fertility services has been limited for service members as they must meet stringent criteria set by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). While the VA recognizes that many factors contribute to infertility in both men and women, it requires a service-connected cause of infertility. Additionally, those who are aspiring single parents or who need sperm/egg donor services cannot access fertility benefits through the VA.

While infertility affects one in eight US couples, Dr. Jason Griffith, Reproductive Endocrinologist and Infertility Specialist (REI), Practice Director at Aspire HFI in Houston, Texas, and a former military member, notes that traumatic injuries from explosive devices and blasts are unfortunately a byproduct of service that can harm male and female reproductive health.

“The privilege I had of serving in the military was I got to interact with America’s best, and these are individuals who come from all walks of life but share the same dreams, goals, and aspirations,” says Dr. Griffith. “Any time we can show appreciation for those who have taken this path, invested in their country, and protected American families is gratifying. I am very proud to be part of Prelude and their decision to help those who have served have better access to fertility care.”

In addition to Dr. Griffith, the Prelude Military Families campaign features Prelude patients who share their own military experiences and journeys to parenthood through assisted reproductive technologies, as well as Dr. David Prokai, REI at Aspire Fertility Austin. “It’s not uncommon for our military patients to have a longer fertility struggle because of their active service status, such as traveling and other factors. We proudly offer discounts to former and active military members and decrease that barrier, which is so important.”
