  • Service to Veterans Program

    PREG has recently announced that we will offer deeply discounted care to veterans whose service related injuries have impaired their fertility.  This program was initiated by the Society for Assisted Technology ( in November of 2015.

    In South Carolina, PREG’S very own John Payne is the provider of choice with Tricare, the VA’s insurance.  Dr. Payne joined the staff of PREG in 2007 after a successful fifteen-year military medical career.  He served as Chief of the Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility Division at Walter Reed Army Medical Center.  He is board certified in both General Obstetrics and Gynecology and in the subspecialty of Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility.

    Dr. Payne commented on the program, “I signed up for this program immediately! During my military career, I have witnessed first-hand the devastating injuries, dedication and sacrifice that our military personnel and their families make…I whole heartedly believe that we should take care of our military.  We need to provide them every option available to have a family and cost should not be a factor in their treatment.”

  • Compassionate Corp Program

    PREG is proud to be the only clinic in South Carolina, through a partnership with EMD Serono, who is able to help our veterans receive free medications for fertility treatments.  Learn more at
