    Hello,

    We are working on a proposal for a client who will need several forms that are HIPAA compliant. We have read the knowledge base information about how to do this.

    However, is there an additional fee for the encrypted form & keys? Or will there be an increase in our monthly rate?

    May we obtain social security numbers through the encrypted form? Our client who would like to have the SSNs on their loan application is in the financial lending industry, providing loans for business equipment and working capital.
