"I met with Carmelo yesterday. He was very knowledgeable and provided me with excellent guidance and comparisons of the various medical plan options which can be confusing. I would suggest before anyone selects a plan to meet and discuss it with him. He also can provide presentations regarding sound financial options since he is a licensed broker. I am happy that I met with him."

– Anne Viggiano

“The NYC Business Group assisted my husband and I as we navigated the options for medical coverage when we retired. We sat down with them and they explained in detail all of the options from which to choose. We were so relieved to be given a clear explanation of benefits and how each company compared in their coverage. What a relief it was to be sure we were choosing the right plan! They are friendly, professional, and very helpful. (There is no charge for their service, which was hard to believe, but true!)”

– Diane Sussuma

“NYC Business Group was incredible. They had the guidance that my wife’s family needed to navigate through an enormous amount of paperwork. Rosa and Carmelo are dolls. They are good family people that consider your hearts as opposed to your pockets. I would highly recommend their services to anyone looking for advice and help in the health care aid of someone you love.”

– John Ryan
