How do you turn off the healthbar on targeted creatures?

This is only an issue for me when mining with a fire beetle. Using the beetle to smelt ore activates the healthbar and it remains showing unless I do something like mount the beetle. Ocassionally, the healthbar prevents me from mining a spot. Yes, I could just move the beetle and have it stay, but if I could turn off the healthbar, I could just mine with no issues. Thank you for you time.
If Mariah's picture above is what you are referring to, then you are talking about the "mini health bar" not the "health bar" - yes, the EC distinguishes between the two.
The mini health bar appears to be a function of the Cursor Targeting system in the EC and anytime you are targeting a mobile with the Cursor Targeting system, the mini health bar will appear for that mobile. I haven't had much time to look, but I don't see an action to toggle the mini health bar off once it appears. The simplest way seems indeed to be to mount/dismount the beetle.
However, as Mariah suggested, you can use direct targeting (Target>Stored) instead of cursor targeting to smelt ore on the beetle without a mini health bar appearing. Mariah's macro and hotbar examples above use the direct targeting method.
