    Is the health bar in a Canvas, or attached to the boss? If it's attached to the boss, just make it a child element of the boss, and it will go away automatically when he does.

    If it's in a Canvas, it's still easy.
    - Create the health bar with the "active" box unchecked (it's in the upper-left corner of the inspector).
    - In your code, when you want the health bar to appear, call SetActive(true) on its GameObject.
    - When the boss dies (which I assume happens in code), call SetActive(false) on the health bar.
