This Week in Costa Rica is a weekly, online radio program and podcast by US expat, Dan Stevens

Asset Protection | Investment Opportunities | Obamacare for Expats


This week is a power-packed episode featuring answers to many of the questions sent in by our loyal listeners around the world.  Today’s program opens with Corey speaking on the need for citizens of Canada and the United States to purchase travel insurance when visiting their home countries.  As non-factual residents, expats abroad often forget the need to have health care coverage for their short or long-term visits and travels – especially in Canada.

Be smart. Be prepared. Eliminate the gaps in your financial planning, tax preparations, regulatory compliance, and asset protection.  Corey is pleased to have a conversation with the new CEO of Escape Artist, Domingo Silvas.  Domingo and Corey speak about the Escape Artist LIVE conference taking place in Guanacaste, February 1-5.  Some of the speakers include:

  • Joel Nagel – Nagel & Associates
  • Domingo Silvas – EscapeArtist, Panama
  • Alejandro Berkowitz – Mar Vista, Costa Rica
  • Trevor Bradley & Dave Drummond – Georgetown Trust, Belize
  • Mike Cobb - ECI Development
  • Don Nisbet – Flamingo Towers, Costa Rica
  • Louis Petrossi – Wealth Research Institute
  • Peter Zipper – Caye Bank, Belize
  • and MORE!

Next up, Mike Cobb of ECI Development and Hemispheres Publishing joins Corey from Belize.  Mike speaks about some of the community developments he has spearheaded in Belize, Nicaragua, Panama, and Costa Rica.  In addition, Mike talks about some of the investment opportunities that can get people a second residency in Panama for an investment as low as $15,000 usd, which will be covered in the upcoming event in Guanacaste.

For the last segment, Corey calls Randall Linder and Ross Lustman of U.S. Tax International to talk about the implications of the Affordable Care Act on expat Americans living abroad.  Are you subject to the individual mandate?  Will you be penalized for not enrolling if you don’t live in the U.S.?  Tune in to find out what you need to do to meet the exemption requirements of this new law.
