Experienced radiologic technologists working in public health centers will get a raise after the Department of Budget and Management (DBM) approved higher salary grades for four positions.

Under Budget Circular 2018-2 issued by Budget Secretary Benjamin E. Diokno on March 15, the positions of Radiologic Technologist II to V were reallocated to salary grades two notches up.

The pay for Radiologic Technologist II will move to salary grade 15 from 13 at present; Radiologic Technologist III, to salary grade 18; Radiologic Technologist IV, to salary grade 20; and Radiologic Technologist V, to salary grade 22.
The DBM said the new salaries will be implemented starting April 1.

However, in the case of the entry-level Radiologic Technologist I, the position “will continue to be allocated to Salary Grade 11,” the DBM circular read.
“The field of radiology has evolved to become a vital component of health care by being a key diagnostic tool for diseases and as an instrument for monitoring treatments. Relatedly, radiologic technologists, who have become key members of the health care team in health establishments, have to keep pace with technological developments and be knowledgeable in all modalities of radiologic examination and monitoring,” the DBM said.
“In view thereof, the review and re-allocation of the radiologic technologist series of positions was conducted by the DBM,” it added.
According to the DBM, the higher pay grades will cover all radiologic technologists II-V, “whether regular, casual, or contractual in nature, full-time or part-time, now existing or hereafter created in the national government agencies, including state colleges and universities and government-owned and/or -controlled corporations, and in local government units covered by the Compensation and Position Classification System under Republic Act No. 6758 or the Compensation and Position Classification Act of 1989, as amended.”                    /kga
