Can my employees receive money from an ICHRA and collect the Premium Tax Credit?

In general, no.

For background, the Premium Tax Credit (aka "Obamacare subsidies") is a tax credit offered to individuals to lower their monthly health insurance payments. 

If a business provides an employee with an affordable ICHRA, the employee cannot also collect the Premium Tax Credit

However, if a business provides the employee with an unaffordable ICHRA, the employee can choose either pre-tax money from your company's ICHRA or the Premium Tax Credit. You as the employer may face fines for offering an unaffordable ICHRA. Please consult Venteur for more information.
