    Can I remove encryption so that way I can upgrade my account to be HIPAA compliant? Then after the review, can I re-encrypt my forms?

    Yes, you can do that but when you're on HIPAA, Data Encryption is optional since HIPAA has already PHI fields feature where fields are protected by default. The data are also transmitted and stored securely into our HIPAA Compliant servers.
