    The only way you can qualify for subsidies is if you buy the insurance directly through the exchange.  You can't buy it directly from the insurance company and get the federal subsidy.

    In your case it is also apparently the case that if you buy it directly from the insurance company it is more expensive before any consideration of a subsidy.  That may or may not  be true of other plans and other insurance companies.

    And yes, it certainly sounds ridiculously confusing, and probably intended to be so!
