Swiss health insurance and Obamacare (ACA) for expats

I will be working in Switzerland for 9 months and am wondering if Swiss insurance like Swica (or a similar company) will count as minimum coverage under ACA for the time I am in Switzerland? Or does foreign insurance not meet the requirements of the law? It looks like a clear exemption is granted to expats working for 330 days abroad. I'll have a shorter stay (9 months), does anyone know if foreign insurance will work for purposes of Obamacare law and, if not, how I can apply for an exemption? I figured some expats on here would know :)
