It depends on the proposal, and there's no reason to think it would be enacted as-is, but the Sanders bill (the most commonly-discussed version of Medicare For All) doesn't put anyone on the current Medicare system, which is actually abolished in the plan, and replaced by a whole new and entirely public system also called Medicare.
