Since I don't earn more than 90k, I should be able to get the federal income tax back, which should more than offset the cost of insurance in Taiwan.
I have also read that since my remote office is in the US and not in Taiwan (and I am getting paid in US), there is no way for Taiwan's government to track the salary so there is no need to file income tax.
So I guess as far as the US government and my company is concerned, it should be business as usual. My company still report and pay taxes since I'm employed from the US office and it is up to me to prove and claim the foreign earned income exclusion. Maybe my case is simpler because I can legally stay in Taiwan without the need for a work visa?

@shaktipalooza, can you explain what you mean by "it won't fly with my company?" That's really a key part of my question...can I work in Taiwan remotely and still "work" out of the US office? Without being classified as an expat or be transferred to the company office in Taiwan?
