Why would you have to pay the same amount for a reversal if tubes were clamped, not tied or burnt? Whats the difference?

In brief: Scarring

No matter how a tubal sterilization is performed over time the tubes become scarred.
So the surgery to reverse the original procedure is basically the same. The success may differ but the surgeon is still performing the same procedure.

In brief: Same procedure

The amount is the same because the surgery is the same.
No matter how the tube was blocked (tied, burned, excised, ringed, clamped), the surgeon still needs at least 3 cm of tube to work with. The ends are cut to normal tube on both sides and then microsurgery stitches them back together in layers. Doesn't matter what procedure you had except for essure or adiana (different procedure & difficult).
