Michigan Department of Health and Human Services


Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) recently released the Michigan Online Reporting System for mandated reporters to submit complaints of suspected child abuse and neglect. MDHHS created the Michigan Online Reporting System for mandated reporters to submit non-emergency complaints of suspected child abuse and neglect. The benefits of submitting a complaint via the Michigan Online Reporting System include:

  • Submit a complaint 24/7 from anywhere with internet access
  • Save the reporter information so future reports are more quickly completed
  • Avoid phone wait time
  • Upload photos and documents with the complaint
  • Save in-progress complaints and resume later
  • View recently submitted complaints
  • Receive an automatic email receipt that the complaint was received
  • Skip completing the DHS-3200

When submitting a complaint through the Michigan Online Reporting System, be sure to provide all the complaint information as thoroughly as possible to allow Centralized Intake to fully assess the situation.

For cases which require an emergency response, please continue to call 911 and then the Centralized Intake Hotline at 855-444-3911 instead of using the Michigan Online Reporting System to submit a complaint. The Centralized Intake phone hotline will also remain available and fully staffed for those who prefer to call in their report. However, when calling a complaint into the hotline, MDHHS still requires a written report (DHS-3200) within 72 hours of the call.

Michigan Professional Licensing User System (MiPlus)

March 29, 2019

Dear Subscriber:As you may already be aware, the Bureau of Professional Licensing (BPL) within the Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA) is moving to a new online licensing and regulatory database for health and occupational professions, called Michigan Professional Licensing User System (MiPlus).

Our tentative launch date for this Phase 2 of the new system is May 6, 2019. This phase involves the 12 professions listed in the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs). In order to allow time for migration of current licensing records into the new system, our office will be unable to process license applications, license renewals, or changes to licenses between April 12, 2019 and May 6, 2019, for these professions only. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

We have created a frequently asked questions document available here that provides answers to questions regarding the conversion to the new system. If you have any additional questions or concerns regarding the transition, please do not hesitate to contact us at 517-241-0199 or email to

As we get closer to the launch date, we will be posting additional information and instructional videos on our MiPlus website (

Again, thank you for your partnership over the years as we work together to make Michigan’s system of professional licensing a model for others.
