In the middle of the program, Uncle Wang had a fall because of his poor eyesight, and Physio’s service was added to the program. When half of the planning time has passed, Uncle Wang has already used 70% of the funds. It is obvious that according to the current utilization of the plan, Uncle Wang’s plan is not enough funds.
