He said that people at the specified salary level* would not be eligible for government subsidies. So the salary level he is talking about would have to be above the ACA levels for government subsidies. The level depends on the number of dependents, but a family of 4 would have to make about $94K a year before there is no government cap (which is how the subsidy is applied) on health care costs. It would be a rare salaried job that paid
$94K without some sort of health care. (Or pair of $47K jobs where neither included some sort of health care.)

*Which he never actually specifies.
