ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - State health officials say nearly all New Yorkers won't see health care premium increases through the marketplace set up by former President Barack Obama's signature health law.

New Yorkers have until Dec. 15 to enroll for coverage effective Jan. 1, and until Jan. 31 for coverage starting March 1.

Health officials say over 4.8 million people have such coverage. The number of uninsured New Yorkers has declined by 1.2 million since 2010.

The deputy director of New York's marketplace tells Newsday those who earn too much to qualify for subsidies would see an average 6.8% increase. That includes families of four who make over $103,000 annually.

The Trump administration is fighting in court to declare Obamacare unconstitutional. New York is set to spend $43 million to promote its program for 2020.
