But see, the Kaiser link is the same ambiguity I keep running into over and over:

To be eligible for the premium tax credits, individuals must not be eligible for public coverage—including Medicaid, the Children's Health Insurance Program, Medicare, or military coverage—and must not have access to health insurance through an employer. (There is an exception in cases when the employer plan does not cover at least 60 percent of covered benefits on average or the employee share of the premium exceeds 9.5% of the employee's income.)
The employee premiums for us are 15 percent of our income; but our kids will soon be eligible for CHIP after they go six months without coverage (in March). However, I would then be the only member of the family without coverage and I would like to be covered!
