Is there any way to waive the health surcharge that you have to pay with your visa?
Depends who you are.

You’ll be able to use the NHS without paying the surcharge or getting a reference number if:


you’re applying for indefinite leave to enter or remain
you’re a diplomat or a member of a visiting armed forces and not subject to immigration control
you’re a dependant of a member of the UK’s armed forces
you’re the dependant of a member of another country’s armed forces who is exempt from immigration control
you’re a family member of a European national with European Union treaty rights
you’re applying for a visa for the Isle of Man or Channel Islands
you’re a British Overseas Territory citizen resident in the Falkland Islands
you’re an asylum seeker or applying for humanitarian protection (or you’re their dependant)
you’re a domestic worker who has been identified as a victim of slavery or human trafficking
you’re applying for discretionary leave to remain in the UK as someone who has been identified as a victim of slavery or human trafficking (or you’re their dependant)
the Home Office’s domestic violence concession applies to you (or you’re their dependant)
being made to leave the UK would be against your rights under Article 3 of the European Convention of Human Rights (or you’re their dependant)

You do not need to pay the surcharge or get an IHS reference number if you’re applying for a:


visitor visa
visa for 6 months or less from outside the UK
