Kaiser Permanente is going the retail route to encourage you to sign-up for health care coverage under the Covered California program. 

In an effort to get out ahead of the pack, Kaiser Permamente now has retail outlets where you can sign up for Kaiser health plans under the Covered California program.

Kaiser has ShopKP stores open in shopping centers around Northern California.

In fact, there's a Kaiser health plan store in the Gateway Shopping Center on North Freeway Boulevard and another in South Sacramento in the Florin Towne Center on Florin Road.

You can shop for a health plan that complies with the Affordable Care Act and learn more about Kaiser Permamente services.
