abstract method

I have a class that inherits from an abstract class.  Inside of this class is an abstract method.  In the inherited class I want the abstract method to be private.  When I code override I get an error that says "COBCH0965: Overriding method must have visibility Public" and from my understanding of Visual Cobol is legitimate.  The question comes into play when I use the cobol keyword override it seems to build just fine.  Is this the intent?  Below is an example of the redefines code.      

class-id Ufg.Life.Policy.PolicyAbstract abstract.

method-id GetPlanCode abstract

procedure division returning returningPlanCode as String.

end method.

*************** now for the class that inherits from the above class

class-id Ufg.Life.Policy.InforcePolicy inherits type Ufg.Life.Policy.PolicyAbstract.

method-id GetPlanCode redefine private

procedure division returning returningPlanCode as String.

end method.
