    add the following to autoexec.cfg and bind the key as shown
    This will hide all health bars (even the one for selected units - cannot do anything about that sorry) while you do not hold the button.

    The bad news is that it cannot be bound to ALT, because it is hard coded to be the hero finder and minimap icons etc.
    However you CAN bind it to many other keys

    autoexec.cfg can be found in

    c:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\dota 2 beta\dota\cfg

    if the file does not exist, create it. Remember to call it autoexec.cfg and not autoexec.cfg.txt, you will need to turn on extensions for known file types

    HOLD mode - unless you hold the button, all health bars are hidden
    Code:
    //health bar hold
    alias "hb_on" "dota_hud_healthbars 3"
    alias "hb_off" "dota_hud_healthbars 0"
    
    alias "+hb" "hb_on"
    alias "-hb" "hb_off"
    -hb
    to bind it to a key, use the code

    Code:
    bind "<key>" "+hb"
    TOGGLE mode - pressing the button will toggle on/off all health bars
    Code:
    //health bar toggle
    alias "hb_on" "dota_hud_healthbars 3;alias hb hb_off"
    alias "hb_off" "dota_hud_healthbars 0;alias hb hb_on"
    hb_off
    to bind it to a key, use the code

    Code:
    bind "<key>" "hb"
    The <key> should be replaced with any of the key names, usually just the letter of the key or a brief name like CTRL, RIGHTARROW etc. You can find a list of all the keys on the internetz
