Orthopedic Surgeon that Accepts Medicaid

I live in Taylor County and need to have surgery on my shoulder for numerous injuries. I only have straight Medicaid and do not have the option for an HMO in this area. My referring physician can not locate a surgeon that accepts straight Medicaid. They have checked in surrounding counties and can not find one that accepts Medicaid out of the area. My local Medicaid office can not help me. They suggest finding a surgeon anywhere in Florida that will work with the local office on payment. Does anyone out there know of an orthopedic surgeon anywhere in Florida that accepts straight Medicaid regardless if they live in their area. I am willing to travel anywhere to have this surgery.

I feel your pain, it really ***** no orthopedic surgeons accepts Medicaid, I am suffering with a spot/diseased tissue on my lower spine, I had a MRI done,and this was the result, still searching, and also I have a bad knee problem, I may need a knee replacement,, It is so frustrating that no specialist would take Medicaid,,WHY?, how long do I have to suffer with this pain, and take medication doesn't do the trick no more. I need results now...
