Yeah, I've been trying to figure out this problem as well. Basically my health care is covered 100%, but adding my wife would cost around 9% of our gross income. But if we qualified for the exchange, we'd get a subsidy so that we'd only pay ~6% for both of us. So if md2000 is correct, we're just completely out of luck. (Thanks for the research, btw.)

And then there's the added complication that I'm a grad student, so whether I count as an "employee" or a "student" in a given situation depends on what's cheapest for the university...
