To be CAP exempt, you must have been counted towards it in the last six years.

There is not enough information to assess the matter. It is unclear whether you have remained in the United States and if so, your current nonimmigrant status. You may be cap exempt if you were counted towards the cap exempt, but there is no information as to when you were approved. This would allow you to obtain a new H-1B visa through a new employer. I encourage you to schedule a consultation with an experienced immigration attorney.
