This is not correct. You must pay the change fee, and then you will have a credit for the value you originally paid, usable within one year for the same traveler.
Not my experience. I simply canceled. No cash required. Big difference - no cash required to cancel a trip.

If canceling and simultaneous rebooking of course they grab the change fee plus fare difference right away.

Or else they give an allowance of fare paid - $200 later when you decide to use the canceled itinerary.
