Yes, it's the same amount, but there are two differences. 1) You pay the change fee in cash upfront, and the entire value you can use later is then in the form of a voucher valid only on a specific airline. 2) If you're unable to use the value for a later ticket, you lose the change fee as well as whatever you paid for the original ticket.
