Hi there!

Though I would not know an orthopedician who would accept Medicaid, you could work on it two ways. 1. Search the yellow pages and call at their offices to enquire, if not already mentioned on the net or 2. You could try moving out of the state for some time, to a place where the insurance would work.
Hope this helps.

Take care!
