Univera Warns Seniors of Scam


By Mark Wozniak

Buffalo, NY – Univera Health Care is warning area residents to watch out for a man knocking on doors, trying to enroll people into their SeniorChoice HMO plan.

Officials say the company does not enroll members by door to door solicitation, nor do they charge an up-front fee, which the man is asking for.

Incidents have been reported in the Elma and East Aurora areas.

Residents who see this person should call the police, and they are warned not to let him into their homes, nor to give him any money.
