I have a taxpayer who is from France. He has received his social security card and will be starting a business in America. He currently receives his health care from his native country France. Is there an exemption for this under the ACA?

Is he a US resident?

You would have to find out if his French coverage meets minimum essential coverage in the US.

A quick glance at the French website for the health insurance for expats, does not look like it would meet MEC standards, they would need to purchase a supplemental insurance plan called wellaway. Look at the Sept 15 notice here:

I have found out now that he has dual citizenship.
